Human Rights Council reform should happen from within, says former Vice-President

22 June 2018

Human rights affect everyone and all countries have a responsibility to work together to protect them, a former Vice-President of the UN Human Rights Council has said.

Speaking in defence of the UN’s principal political human rights body, following the United States’ decision to leave it earlier this week citing allegations of long-term bias, Christian Strohal spoke to Michelle Kusuma, in Geneva, and told her that everybody needed to be engaged on human rights.
