Human Rights Council Elections 2017: discussion of candidate States' visions for membership
11 Sep 2017 -  In advance of the Human Rights Council elections that will take place this autumn for the membership term 2018-2020, Amnesty International and the International Service for Human Rights will hold pledging events for candidate States in Geneva and New York.
The New York event is co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of the Czech Republic, Iraq and Uruguay, and is intended to give candidates an opportunity to present their vision for Council membership and to respond to questions from a range of stakeholders on how they would realize the pledges and commitments they may have made in seeking election.
