During the seventh session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, an EHAHRDP delegation that was attending the Council, organised, along with Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International and the National Union of Somali Journalists, an event on Somalia. Dr Ghanim Alnajjar, the now former Independent Expert, was one of the panellists.

Malab Alneel was only 20 when Sudan’s revolution started in December 2018, but she knew it was the moment to get involved: “I grew up in a house that was very political.
