Dear members, As already publicised in the past weeks, as of Monday, 18 November a moderated forum discussion for non-governmental organisations and other civil society actors will be organised on the Global HRE List. The objective of this forum is to discuss ideas and strategies to strengthen HRE at the national, regional and international levels as a follow-up to the Decade for HRE (1995-2004), including mobilisation strategies/mechanisms which could be proposed for consideration to the United Nations. The Forum will build on the recommendations made by many actors, including this list's members, within the mid-term evaluation of the Decade (2000; full report available at <http://www.unhchr.ch/Huridocda/Huridoca.nsf/(Symbol)/ A.55.360.En?Opendocument>) The forum will have the following agenda: 18-24 November Follow-up to the Decade at the local and national levels 25 November-1 December Follow-up to the Decade at the regional level 2 - 8 December Follow-up to the Decade at the international level Every Monday we will send out a "facilitation" message with questions regarding that week's topic. At the end of each week, HREA will summarise the week's discussion and will share the summary with all listserv members. The summaries will be the basis for a report, prepared by HREA, to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, for the preparation of a study requested by the UN Commission on Human Rights (the full text of the relevant CHR resolution is available at: <http://www.unhchr.ch/huridocda/huridoca.nsf/(Symbol)/ E.CN.4.RES.2002.74.En?OpenDocument>) On Monday you will receive a first message with the topic and questions for discussion for the first week of the Forum. We look forward to an interesting and exciting dialogue and encourage all list members to share their experiences. We also encourage you to let others -- who are not subscribed to the listserv -- know about this On-line Forum, in order to get as many contributions and ideas as possible. As always, we welcome contributions in any language, although the main working language of the list is English. For the occasion of this unique forum, we will translate messages from French, Russian and Spanish into English.
