Dear Delegates,

The United Nations Human Rights Council, abbreviated to HRC, was created by the United Nations General Assembly on March 15, 2006. The HRC was created to strengthen the promotion and protection of human rights for every human being, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, among others. Consequently, the committee deals with a broad range of topics, such as addressing specific rights to combat some of the worst human rights violations ever witnessed. The Human Rights Council is one of the most significant committees in the United Nations as it takes the responsibility of assuring human rights by unifying nations and guaranteeing a dignified life for many. 

 

During the course of the model, our task as the HRC committee is to address various situations that present a violation of human rights and a threat to the social well-being of citizens. Delegates are expected to develop their full potential by defending their country’s position correctly, by debating enthusiastically, and by coming up with solutions for global issues. Finally, we encourage you to actively participate, and to ask for help when necessary so that you can fully enjoy this enriching experience. 

 

We look forward to having you as our delegate in the upcoming model!

 

Yours sincerely,

Natalia and Catalina
