Yvonne Donders will undertake a consultancy for UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. She is asked to prepare an update of the 2003 UNESCO Human Rights Strategy, to be adopted by the Member States in 2019.

The new human rights strategy is supposed to reaffirm the role of UNESCO in the field of human rights within the UN system and to place UNESCO's human rights activities in the new context of several international frameworks, such as the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Urban Agenda.

A broad consultation process including with Member States, NGOs, NHRIs and human rights experts is part of the process.
