The United Nations Human Rights Council is an intergovernmental body responsible for the task of promoting and protecting all human rights. Made up of 47 states, the UNHRC has a global reach as it addresses violation of rights in conflict areas including those of an economic, social or cultural nature. While the UN has adopted the broad goal of addressing human rights in the UN Charter, UNHRC serves as the main forum for dialogue and intergovernmental cooperation on a variety of human rights issues. Consequently, they are tasked with making and releasing recommendations concerning what best course of action should be taken. This committee aims to maintain and protect universal rights that should be granted for everyone.
