UN Human Rights Council Sessions


  • The 28th Session of the Human Rights Council took place in Geneva from March 2-27, 2015. The Council considered the human rights situation in a number of countries, among them Syria, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, and Burma. It also considered the reports of a number of special rapporteurs on thematic issues including the right to freedom of religion or belief, the prohibition against torture, and the situation of human rights defenders. At the conclusion of the session, the Council adopted 34 resolutions, two of which created new Special Procedures mandates: an Independent Expert on the enjoyment of human rights of persons with albinism and a Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy. The next session of the Council will take place in June 2015.
