Under the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, Doha is hosting Monday the International Conference on 'Human Rights Approach to Conflict Situations in the Arab Region.'

The conference is being organised by the National Human Rights Committee and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UHCHR) in co-operation with the General Secretariat of the Council of Arab Interior Ministers and the Arab Network for National Human Rights Institutions (ANNHRI).
The two-day conference will examine the role of human rights in preventing conflict and how it can act as a tool for early warning.
It will focus on human rights during armed conflict and in other situations of violence and insecurity.
The conference also aims to address measures based on human rights norms that governments, national human rights intuitions and other stakeholders can engage in the aftermath of conflict to prevent recurrence, including peace agreements, and to promote peacekeeping activities.
Other related issues such as preventing violent extremism and countering terrorism while protecting human rights will be also examined through sharing good practices.
