After several months of negotiation Edmund Rice International has signed an agreement with Franciscans International establishing a collaborative partnership to promote a social justice and human rights agenda worldwide.

The agreement provides for ERI personnel to work within the Franciscans International offices in Geneva and places ERI potentially in a strong position to advocate for global social justice and the promotion of human rights.

Currently Franciscans International is supporting the global campaign to preserve and strengthen the Special Procedures of the United Nations Human Rights Council which are under threat from a review that is currently underway.

You can support the effective promotion and protection of human rights by participating in this campaign and signing the petition which can be accessed at the above website.
