HUMAN RIGHTS IMPACTS OF SANCTIONS

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

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. It meets at the UN Office in Geneva. The Council is made up of 47 United Nations Member States which are elected by the UN General Assembly. The Human Rights Council replaced the former United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

In the Human Rights Council, delegates shall represent one of the 47 current member states. The working procedure of the Committee will be led by the Committee Directors. Delegates in the Human Rights Council must write a position paper for the announced topics and submit it to the MUNLawS Academic team. Position papers will be reviewed and scored by the Academic team and shall greatly contribute to the final scores of delegates, upon which Committee awards will be based. Instructions on how to write the position paper are published on this website. Failure to follow these instructions or to meet the deadline for the submission of the position papers will result in negative points for the position paper. All delegates shall present their opening statements on the discussed topic after setting the agenda. Once every delegate presents their opening statement, which must not exceed 2 minutes, a general speakers list will be established and the floor shall be open to points or motions, as described in the General Rules of Procedure. Delegates recognized from the general speakers' list shall have no more than one and a half minute to address the Committee.

The main goal of the Committee is to adopt a Resolution. Issues that have not been discussed during formal debate may not be included in the Resolution. Every delegate shall read the General Rules of Procedure prior to the start of the MUNLawS Conference for a further detailed description of the procedure.

Sven Pungartnik Rauter

As a former music student now studying law in Ljubljana, Sven is trying to find the art of being a lawyer. Even though the law is a science, its application is not, and this is what fascinates him most in his field of study.
Born and raised in Celje, Slovenia, seeing the world beyond our small borders is always a delight. Apart from reading as an academic and performing as a musician, he very much enjoys his free time and especially the coffee breaks.
