Title: ASIL Insights: The New United Nations Human Rights Council
Available From: http://www.asil.org/insights060327.cfm
Last Updated: 2006-03-27
Description: When the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the creation of a Human Rights Council on March 15, 2006, it marked the end of many months of contention on how to shape a new entity to replace the Human Rights Commission.
Scott R. Lyons explains the issues involved, including criteria for membership on the Council, size, the election process, term limits and frequency of meeting, while laying out the differing viewpoints and why the new entity, though imperfect, is an improvement upon its predecessor.
