The United Nations Human Rights Council was created on the 15th of March 2006 by resolution 60/251 of the United Nations General Assembly. Although the Council was created almost 14 years ago, the UN Human Rights programme started during the 1940s. However, the programme only began to grow once the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” was adopted in 1948. The committee continues to grow and adapt to new challenges as the standards of human rights change over time.
The Human Rights Council is made up of 47 United Nations member states which are chosen in the General Assembly and which rotate every 3 years. The nations elected to take part in the Council must promote and uphold human rights.
