Istanbul, May 31 (DP.net).─ The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) gathered in Istanbul 400 human rights defenders from its members organisations and partners around the world from May 23 to May 27, 2013.

- Freedom and capacity to act of human rights defenders,
- Universality of rights, in particular those of women and migrants, whose - inequitable treatment constitutes a major obstacle for the progress of mankind,
- Effectiveness of Human Rights, to put an end to the impunity of authors of violations, who are not called to account, be they individuals, States or business enterprises,
- Respect for Human Rights and the Rule of Law in times of conflict, emergency or political transition.
