Description

Here at UN News, we do try to avoid overloading you with too many facts and figures, but here’s one that’s worth remembering: the Human Rights Council has reached an historic milestone of convening this week, for its 50th session. 


The world’s preeminent forum for discussing rights issues of concern was created by the UN General Assembly, back in 2006.  


Fast forward to today, and for the current President of the General Assembly, Abdulla Shahid, the Human Rights Council’s recently adopted resolutions on human rights and climate change have a personal significance, as he explains to Dominika Tomaszewska-Mortimer.
