    Goals / Remit

    The Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) advocates for human rights, democracy, and accountability across the Arab region. As a regional organization deeply embedded within the human rights movement in the Arab region, CIHRS fosters strong connections with civil society organizations on the ground while effectively engaging with players in the international community, such as the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). CIHRS has a distinctive ability to connect human rights violations in MENA to global security and stability concerns. The organization combines international advocacy, research, capacity building, and human rights dissemination and media campaigns to elevate the voices of local human rights actors and defenders, and in doing so contributes to the protection of public space within the Arab region. On the EU level, CIHRS aims to engage and encourage EU interest-driven actors to respect human rights, justice and accountability.

    Main EU files targeted

    Advocacy on the EU member states and institutional level, in coordination with human rights and democracy defenders from the MENA region, as well as capacity-building and networking activities for these rights defenders focusing on EU mechanisms.

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
