The Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body within the United Nations system made up of 47 States responsible for the promotion and protection of all human rights around the globe. The UNHRC investigates allegations of breaches of human rights in UN member states, and addresses important thematic human rights issues such as freedom of association and assembly, freedom of expression, freedom of belief and religion, women’s rights, LGBT rights, and the rights of racial and ethnic minorities. The UNHRC was established by the UN General Assembly on March 15, 2006 (by resolution A/RES/60/251) to replace the UN Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR) that had been strongly criticised for allowing countries with poor human rights records to be members. The UNHRC works closely with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and engages the UN’s special procedures.

The Chairs

Alfie Jenkins

Alfie is a born and raised Londoner who graduated from the University of Reading with a Politics and International Relations Degree last year. He began MUN participation 6 years ago and never looked back since then, despite his lack of diplomacy as a first-time delegate. He has taken on most positions in the crazy number of conferences he has attended, most notably serving as the 2018 Secretary-General of LIMUN: High School and the 2019 USG Academics for CologneMUN. Outside of MUN, Alfie can be found enjoying a glass of whisky to Rick and Morty, kicking demon butt in Devil May Cry or enjoying the wonders of his home city.

Aliaa is a Political Science and Economics student at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. She started doing MUNs when she was in high school and has not stopped since. This is her first time chairing and is very excited to be chairing this year at IsarMUN. When she is not playing with her dog, she likes to read books, watch movies and go swimming.
