In a ministerial speech, the importance of having a multilateral and collective approach to promote a cause as broad as the protection and defense of human rights will be highlighted. In fact, a single actor, whether in the public or private sector, however powerful, cannot expect to make a difference in this area. For this reason, international law must play a fundamental role in protecting people against human rights abuses and violations by their peers, States or other public or private entities. Legal professions, and above all the legal profession, have the responsibility to support these efforts to ensure greater respect for human rights.
