United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) 56th Session in Geneva

June 18 - July 12

GHRD AND THE UNITED NATIONS

The United Nations is an international and intergovernmental organization, founded in 1945 after the Second World War. It was created in light of the horrors of the war to act on issues confronting humanity such as maintaining international peace and security, protecting human rights, delivering humanitarian aid, promoting sustainable development, and upholding international law.

The mission of the organization has been guided by the UN Charter, an instrument of international law that the members are bound to. It codifies major principles of international relations, varying from the prohibition of the use of force in international settings to maintaining the sovereign equality of states.

56th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)

GHRD is pleased to be hosting yet another side event at the United Nations in Geneva during the 56th Human Rights Council sessions. The upcoming event will be discussing human rights in Pakistan, so as to better inform the audience and public about ongoing human rights violations in Pakistan and to promote discussion and advocacy against such human rights abuses.

Although Pakistan is a signatory to several international human rights conventions, multiple violations of these treaties persist, especially against religious minorities and women from minority communities. The failure to take action to protect these communities and hold perpetrators accountable severely compromises Pakistan’s human rights obligations.

GHRD looks forward to the meaningful discussion and invites all interest parties to the event, which will be on 21st of June, 13:00 p.m. to 14:00 p.m. in Room XXV, Palais des Nations, Geneva and will also be streamed on GHRTV’s YouTube channel. We hope you will attend either in person or online.

Stay tuned on our social media posts for more on the upcoming Un Human Rights Council!
