Abstract

This article aims at recalling the making-of of Conectas Human Rights, a human rights international organization in/from the Global South, created by a group of practitioners and academics in São Paulo, Brazil. Based on the authors’ experience as former and current executive directors of Conectas, this article covers the main aspects of Conectas’s Global South Program, concentrating its analysis on the International Human Rights Colloquium and the Foreign Policy Project, as part of Conectas’s efforts to reach out to organizations and networks outside Brazil, to bridge the gap between human rights and other disciplines and to facilitate their access to the United Nations.

Keywords: Conectas Human Rights, International Human Rights Colloquium, Global South, Foreign policy project
