NEW YORK –  As the United Nations holds a 10th anniversary commemoration of the notorious 2001 Durban conference this September in New York, 25 non-governmental organizations will hold a parallel summit next door. 

The NGO Human Rights Summit, organized by Geneva-based NGO UN Watch in partnership with an international civil society coalition, will take place September 21-22, 2011, at the start of the United Nations’ annual General Assembly meetings.
