Last 9th and 10th July took place the 7th EU – Mexico Civil Society Seminar on Human Rights within the framework of the IX Session of the High Level Dialogue on Human Rights between the European Union and Mexico. 

Both the seminar and the dialogue are very good practice for all the parts involved to create more effective cooperation and to address major human rights concerns. 

The EU LAT Network with other european NGOs insisted that the cooperation between the UE and Mexico has to be adapted to the consequences of the pandemic, ensuring flexibility on the definition of priorities according to the most urgent needs.

They highlighted issues such as the rule of law, corporate responsibility, fight against gender based violence and the human rights defenders
