About HuriTALK

The UN Human Rights Policy Network (HuriTalk) – the UN-Wide virtual knowledge network on human rights policy – connects over 1800 development practitioners from more than 20 UN agencies, funds and programmes. Through the exchange of information, good practice and lessons learned, members develop their understanding of and capacity to integrate human rights-based approaches into development programming and practice. The network serves as a valuable practical tool for translating the UN’s commitment to mainstream human rights into all aspects of its work, system-wide.
