HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

“All victims of human rights abuses should be able to look to the Human Rights Council as a forum and a springboard for action.”

- Ban Ki-moon

"The Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body within the United Nations system responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe and for addressing situations of human rights violations and make recommendations on them. It has the ability to discuss all thematic human rights issues and situations that require its attention throughout the year. It meets at the UN Office at Geneva.

The Council is made up of 47 United Nations Member States which are elected by the UN General Assembly. The Human Rights Council replaced the former United Nations Commission on Human Rights". (UN Website).
