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

Camille Saikali

French and Lebanese, Camille grew up in Beirut. After her baccalauréat, she went to Paris in order to pursue her studies at the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne doing a double bachelors in History and Politics. After that she did one year of a master in History of Science, Technologies and Societies at École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales – EHESS but she ended up realising that she was missing Politics a little too much. Now she is in the first year of a masters in European and International Studies at Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle. She began doing MUN in early 2015 and since then she has done pretty much everything you can do in MUN: delegate, crisis backroom, chair in English and French, staff, ASG, USG, DSG at PIMUN (very good conference btw), training officer at Sorbonne ONU… Yes, the addiction is real! She decided to apply as a chair at IsarMUN for three reasons: those 3 years of German classes in High School have to come in handy someday, Pretzels and she HAS to wear her French football jersey in Germany (#SorryNotSorry  #DeuxÉtoiles). Oh yeah, and the organising team is known to be amazing but food and football have to come before this, right?

Jochen Schlotterbeck

Jochen is 30 and studies History and Philosophy in his final year at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. He got introduced to MUN during his ERASMUS year in Cork. Since that he went to different Conferences in Europe as a Delegate, just like ÉireMUN, ScotMUN, TICS, BerlinMUN and KULMUN. This year he went back to ÉireMUN in Cork where he got his first opportunity to chair a committee. Before he will be a Chair for UNHRC at IsarMUN, he will get some more chairing experience at MiMUN in Madrid where he will be chairing UN Women. He is looking forward to see great and deep debates about the topics, enjoying the Socials, meet old friends and find new ones and have an amazing time at IsarMUN 2018. He also hopes that everyone is as exited as he is to be a part of IsarMUN and making it a unique and awesome experience for everyone.

Mareike Schörgendorfer

Mareike is a fourth year law student at Munich‘s LMU and will be one of your chairs in the HRC. Her main focus is European Union Law and International Law; during her exchange year at Uppsala University she focused on human rights in EU Law. She started her MUN experience at LIMUN one year ago and since then went to several conferences around Europe.
Having been a delegate at last year‘s IsarMUN she is more than excited to come back to this amazing conference as a chair. To her, IsarMUN is the perfect conference to meet old and new friends.
Beyond her love for MUN, she loves dogs, binge-watching TV shows and hiking.
She is looking forward to a lot of enthusiasm, both in debate and on the dancefloor!
