United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)

“Where the time is worth fighting for.”

United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)

The Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body which consists of 47 UN member countries. The Council was founded by the General Assembly (UNGA) in 2006 as its subsidiary body and a successor of the UN Commission on Human Rights.
The Human Rights Council is responsible for the promotion and protection of human rights ranging from the violation of rights in conflict areas to economic, social and cultural rights. This being said, the UNHRC addresses human rights violations and makes recommendations. Although there are many different cultures which all shall be valued, there are universal rights such as – but not limited to – the right to life, the right to freedom and personal liberty and the right to religious freedom, which are supposed to be granted to everyone. Besides, the Human Rights Council regards itself as “the helper in need”
The Human Rights Council is an ideal committee for beginner and intermediate delegates. Position papers are not mandatory but are a prerequisite for award eligibility.
