The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is the primary body of the UN that works to promote and maintain human rights around the world. The Council has 47 members who are elected for three year terms, based on their regional location, that collectively combat abuses.

The UNHRC addresses a whole range of abuses; from violent action to policy that hinders a person’s basic rights. It will be the duty of this council to balance sovereignty and the rights of all humans when addressing some of this world’s most controversial situations.
