A joint written statement of 36 co-signatory organisations on the World Programme for Human Rights Education – Transition from the First Phase to the Second Phase was submitted to the 13th session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC).

Tuning around the time of the UN World Programme for Human Rights Education (WPHRE) to shift from its first phase to the second phase, the NGOs expressed their views in the statement on the importance to have the first phase properly evaluated; commented on the second phase to be launched from 2010; and called on Member States to effectively implement the plan of action for the second phase of the WPHRE.
