Mérida will host the meeting of the board of directors of the International Human Rights Ombudsman Institute, between May 15 and 17. The holders of human rights protection organizations, from 16 countries, will discuss their autonomy vis-à-vis other government powers.
The National Commission of Human Rights (CNDH) will preside over the event, which will follow up on the agreements reached at the 2018 meeting.
Strategies to improve regional communication will also be strengthened, and examples of good practices will be exchanged in agency competencies.
Ombudsmen will come from Africa, Asia, South Pacific Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America and North America.
Luis Raúl González Pérez, president of the CNDH, will participate in a panel discussion with Mariano Yakimavicius, representative of the Ombudsman of the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina; and with Victoria Pearman, regional president of Latin America and the Caribbean of the Ombudsman International Institute.
González Pérez will also present the results of his meeting with Michelle Bachelet, former president of Chile and current high commissioner for United Nations Human Rights, after her visit to Mexico in previous weeks.
