Presentación sobre derechos humanos y derecho al trabajo que tuvo lugar en un evento de la Oficina para las Instituciones Democráticas y los Derechos Humanos (ODIHR – OSCE), que tuvo lugar en Varsovia, el 20 de septiembre de 2016. Incluye un video, con la versión en español de mi presentación, editado en la Universidad Jaume I, Castellón.

On 20 September 2016, the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) invited me to deliver the introductory speech on the International Covenants on human rights and their importance for the OSCE human dimension.

In my presentation, I noted that the security dimension of the economic, social and cultural commitments is even more important by defining peace in wider terms than the mere absence of war. Consequently, giving individuals the possibility to participate meaningfully in society by providing them with productive and decent jobs, will contribute to prevent the radicalization of some segments of society, in particular young persons. The tools required for such are purveyed in the different international human rights treaties and relevant international labour standards established by the International Labour Organization.

I also referred to some OSCE commitments and human rights obligations established in the UN treaties, as well as the requirements of the international labour standards, that provide guidance for policies and legislatives measures for the realization of the right to work.

You can see my speech in its entirety in the following video:

The entire session is also available in the site of the ODIHR.
