Number of Delegates: 47

„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, UN Secretary General, 2007

The Human Rights Council is a Council dealing with the problems of the human rights being abused in the world. The UN-member States are trying to work together in order to find solutions for the problems and in order to prevent them from even coming into existence in the first place. Although there are many different cultures which shall be valued, there are universal rights such as, but not limited to, right to life, right to freedom, right to subsistence level and right to religious freedom which are supposed to be granted. Also the Human Rights Council regards itself as the helper in need by situations or people threatening people and their rights.
