The purpose of the meeting was to discuss potential areas of collaboration between the Geneva Centre and the EPLO, in the framework of the promotion and advancement of human rights at a global level.

The possibility of initiating joint initiatives between both institutions to encourage the global dialogue between the Global South and the Global North was also explored.
