The Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies, in conjunction with the Defender Center for human rights, organized a set of meetings and panel discussions on May 6 and 7 in Tunis, bringing together representatives of Libyan civil society, the head of the National Council for Civil Liberties and Human Rights, and participants in the UN- sponsored political dialogue seeking to resolve the crisis in the framework of respect for human rights principles. Attendees discussed the latest developments in Libya and how to include Libyan civil society in the political dialogue.

Proposals have been submitted to the UN mission and the dialogue parties to include the human rights criteria inside political agreement such as accountability and consolidate the protection against impunity principle and enhance the role of the National Council of public freedoms and human rights dialogue.
