Launch of the yourHRC Guide to the 2021 UN Human Rights Council Elections
On Thursday 7th October 2021, the Universal Rights Group (URG) will host a digital event to mark the launch of the yourHRC.org Guide to the 2021 UN Human Rights Council Elections.
The report is the seventh annual yourHRC.org Guide to the UN Human Rights Council Elections. It provided general information on the 2021 Council elections, when States competed to win seats for new three-year terms (2022-2024).
The Guide is divided into six parts. The first part presents an overview of the 2021 elections the number of seats available, and the candidates in each UN regional group vying for those seats.
The next five parts of the report present more detailed comparative information on the candidates for each of the five UN regional groups. This includes objective information on the State’s historic engagement and cooperation with the Council and the wider UN human rights system, its voting record (where the country concerned has previously been a Council member), an analysis of its new voluntary pledges and commitments (for the 2020 elections), and an analysis of the extent to which it fulfilled its previous voluntary pledges and commitments (again, where the country concerned has previously been a member).
A programme will be shared shortly.
