Rules, Norms and Principles
Current OEWG discussions have so far illustrated that there is widespread agreement that the 11 norms adopted by the UNGA in 2015 require implementation, and that implementation requires greater guidance, including from a wide range of stakeholders.
This session will invite discussion and inputs from both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders on the topic of the UN GGE norms adopted in 2015. It will also be an opportunity to comment on norms guidance text that has been proposed by both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders within the context of the OEWG and relevant sections of the OEWG's revised pre-draft and non-paper. Finally, this event will allow discussions on the ways that both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders can support norm implementation.
The session will open with scene-setter presentations from its co-organisers and lead discussants. A set of discussion questions will be circulated to participants in advance in order to guide their contributions and statements. It is envisaged that this will be an interactive, dialogue-oriented session.
