UN Human Rights Council

Director

Michelle Hobbs

Committee Type

General Assembly

Background Guide

The United Nations Human Rights Council, or UNHRC, is a relatively new body that took the place of the former Commission for Human Rights in 2006. Since then, the UNHCR has been responsible for promoting and protecting human rights in all UN member states. This group is not your average committee- each of its 47 members is elected by the full General Assembly, on the basis of their state's contributions and commitments to human rights. This means that each delegate should enter the committee with pride in their state's human rights achievements, and plans to extend these successes around the globe.

Delegates will be discussing the future of Artificial Intelligence and the future of development in relation to human rights goals. Delegates will explore the ethics surrounding AI beings and what role they will play going forward in the 21st century. Delegates should be prepared for extensive debate and comprehensive resolutions regarding this futuristic topic.
