Human Rights Council

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations.

Human Rights Council Sessions

WFUNA follows closely all Human Rights Council sessions and provides timely and transparent coverage of main issues under discussion.


The Human Rights Council meets three times a year during the months of March, June and September. The cycle of the Council starts in September to end in June, for a total of 10 weeks. The March session is the Council's main session and lasts for four weeks with a High Level segment in its first week. The June and September sessions last three weeks. A new President of the Council is elected every year in June. 

Whenever grave instances of human rights violations occur, the Human Rights Council can meet in a Special Session. Special sessions can be called by a member of the Council with the support of at least one third of membership of the Council.
