- Switzerland, Genève
The president of the IOLG , Dr.Ahlem Arfaoui participated in the Third session of the Forum on Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law on "Equal access to justice for all: a necessary element of democracy, rule of law and human rights protection" held in UN Geneva Switzerland from November 16 to November 17 , 2021 .
Dr. Ahlem mentionned during her live speech that
« successful democratic governance must focus on promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms , for without this protection there can be no democracy in any sense , and for democracy to work satisfactory government must offer a vision for a better life for its citizens and residents , individually and in community with others based on rights approach with particular regard for economic social and cultural rights .
Also democracy and the rule of law must not be victims of any emergency measures because no emergency measures warrant a government to repress and deny fundamental rights and freedom and we can’t succeed without the a participatory process because the civil society is the vehicle for democracy and human rights and for equal and fair justice . »
