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. Considering the traditional lack of interest in Somalia this event generated substantial interest; it revealed a more general increase in attention accorded to the human rights situation in Somalia amongst the international community.

Human Rights Defender of the month: Veronica Almedom

Veronica Almedom is a poster child of successful immigration. A duo Eritrean and Swiss citizen, she was born in Italy, and grew up in Switzerland where she permanently resides. Her parents are some of the earliest victims of Eritrea’s cycles of violence. When Eritrea’s war of independence peaked in the early 1980s, they escaped the country as unaccompanied minors, wandering through Sudan, Saudi Arabia, before making the hazard journey across the Mediterranean into Europe. There, they crossed first to Italy, and finally, to Switzerland, where they settled first as refugees, and later, as permanent residents.
