In collaboration with United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism Border Security & Management
Webinar recording now available to watch at www.border-security-report.com/webinar-library
This first webinar focused on general human rights implications of border management in the context of counter-terrorism, and a discussion of key considerations regarding the protection of human rights at international borders in the context of counter-terrorism.
It also explored the potential impacts of border security and management practices on the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals crossing borders and address the ways in which border officials can be better equipped to apply a rights-based approach to their daily interaction with individuals crossing borders. The importance of integrated border management strategies will also be addressed during the discussions, as well as the role of border communities in supporting the development of human rights-based and gender-responsive screening practices and border strategies.
