TJN Admin ■ Fiscal Policy and Human Rights in the Americas: mobilizing resources to guarantee rights
There is a new initiative emerging from the international strategy meeting, “Advancing Tax Justice through Human Rights,” held in Lima, Peru in April 2015:
Via email from Niko Lusiani of the Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR):
The first-ever thematic audience of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on fiscal policy, begins today in Washington, DC.
Economic policies – and consequently fiscal policies – are not normally debated by human rights accountability bodies, but working together we are increasingly building the foundations for them to become forums for fiscal accountability.
Various participants interested in the initiative in Lima teamed up to petition the Inter-American Commission to hold this hearing, and we produced a report – Fiscal Policy and Human Rights in the Americas: mobilizing resources to guarantee rights along with it. (English summary here.)
We’d encourage you to share this news with your networks, watch live here on Thursday, Oct 22nd at 14:45 (local time in Washington DC) and participate on Twitter: #derechosyfiscalidad #tax4humanrights.
