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. The Council holds no fewer than three regular sessions a year, meeting at the UN Office in Geneva.
IDLO holds an observer status with the Human Rights Council and has a liaison office in Geneva. We showcase our research and conclusions at the Council, participate in high-level meetings, co-host rule-of-law themed events, and facilitate debates and encounters that further the world's understanding of law and development. While not part of the UN, we are aligned with its goals, synchronized with its processes, and increasingly listened to. Find out more about IDLO and its work with the United Nations.
