75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights commemoration event: UK pledge announcement

First, to support the vital work of Human Rights Defenders, through funding their work, monitoring their cases and raising concerns with other governments.  The United Kingdom is delighted to have submitted five pledges.  Thank you, Deputy High Commissioner. Fourth, we will support survivor-led organisations and civil society working to end modern slavery in our funding to international programmes. Thank you. And fifth, we will work towards raising the standards of public and private security organisations through greater adherence to voluntary standards.  Third, to prioritise the right to freedom of religion or belief and to strengthen international coalitions seeking to uphold this right.  Second, to advance equality by increasing our support to LGBT organisations, to persons with disabilities, and to women and girls through bilateral aid.
