This is the first of two evidence sessions for the Committee’s inquiry into the FCO’s human rights work in 2011.
The terms of reference were announced on 30 April 2012, the day on which the FCO published its “annual report” on human rights: Human Rights and democracy: The 2011 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Report.
The purpose of the session will be to hear from two leading NGOs on the form and content of the FCO’s 2011 Human Rights Report, and to examine some of the main developments in the FCO’s human rights policy in 2011.
