The Human Rights Council is made up of governments, it is inevitable that debates and voting that take place in this space are influenced by political agendas. This means that sometimes, human rights take a back seat – which is problematic.
The International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) is an independent, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting and protecting human rights. We achieve this by supporting human rights defenders, strengthening human rights systems, and leading and participating in coalitions for human rights change.
