In the premises of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, the 9th meeting was held on Wednesday, 26 March 2014, of the Coordination Group of the Slovak Government Council for Human Rights, National Minorities and Gender Equality (GCHR) to prepare a National Strategy for the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights in Slovakia. Group members discussed issues of further steps in the preparation of the Strategy with a focus on defining the timetable of other professional events, and determining the follow-up work.

The Coordination Group has a recommending character in relation to the GCHR, and its conclusions will be included in the agenda of the forthcoming GCHR meeting (9 April 2014). In the further process during April and May, professional events will continue to be held on topics relating to the education and edification on human rights, the rights of LGBTI people, gender equality, strengthening of non-profit organizations and mechanisms of participation, the institutional architecture of human rights protection, and dialogue about the nature and meaning of human rights.

The Coordination Group's next meeting will be held in early May this year.
