United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) – Double Delegation
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) was established in 2006 and contains 47 countries chosen by the members of the general assembly. The goal of this committee is to address any human rights violations and abuses while working to protect the rights and freedoms of any global citizen. The UNHRC is responsible for the Universal Periodic Review, a unique mechanism through which the committee reviews the human rights record of each member nation. The member states of the UNHRC have discussed a wide array of topics ranging from freedom of expression to the rights of racial and ethnic minorities.
At JHUMUNC XXV, this committee will be a double delegation committee, meaning each delegation will have two delegates representing the interests of their nation.
Topic A: Externally Displaced People
Topic B: Exploitation of Child Soldiers
