The Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body within the United Nations system responsible for strengthening the
promotion and protection of human rights around the globe and for addressing situations of human rights violations and make recommendations on them. It has the ability to discuss all thematic human rights issues and situations that require its attention throughout the year. The Council is made up of 47 United Nations Member States which are elected by the UN General Assembly. Human rights are based on the principle of respect for the individual. Their fundamental assumption is that people are moral and rational beings who deserve to be treated with dignity. Human rights are the rights to which everyone is entitled—no matter who they are or where they live—simply because they are alive. In the past ages, there were no guaranteed human rights for everyone in the world, but in the wake of the IInd World War, the UN gave the world “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights"and ensured 30 human rights for each and every person on earth.
