United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) 55th Session in Geneva

February 26 - April 5


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.
