65 OAS Policy Roundtable - Regional Agenda for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: A Look into the Future
65th OAS Policy Roundtable
“Regional Agenda for Economic, Social and Cultural
Rights: A look into the Future”
This Roundtable is organized by the OAS General Secretariat, with the purpose of evaluating the current situation of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in the Americas. Also, it seeks to open a dialogue and analyze implications for public policies, as well as advances in the implementation of the Protocol of San Salvador and its insertion in the ongoing discussion of the Post 2015 Development Agenda. For this reason, we have convened a panel of experts to engage in a dialogue where they will be able to share their points of view, experiences and different challenges that the hemisphere faces in this regard.
