ARC International works to support and facilitate international collaborations and coalition building in order to avoid duplication, address gaps and ensure working collectively to advance strategic goals. In addition to our electronic listservs, we seek to support this kind of development in various conference and UN venues, supporting the creation of new networks and the expansion of voices contributing to the dialogue around international and/or regional advocacy.
United Nations World Conferences
UN World Conferences can serve as a valuable platform for building NGO networks and raising awareness of human rights concerns.
ARC International is often invited to present at conferences to provide information on accessing key UN Mechanisms, the challenges faced by LGBTI human rights defenders, and the application of the Yogyakarta Principles to issues of decriminalisation and non-discrimination.
