Other Acts P6_TA-PROV (2009)0021 (14/01/2009)

Type: Acts of the European Union: European Parliament Resolution on the development of the UN Human Rights Council, including the role of the EU

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Parliament

Date: 01/14/2009

Subject: The European Parliament welcomed the work carried out by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and it noted that the UNHRC has the potential to develop into a valuable framework for the EU's multilateral human rights efforts; however, the new body, during the first three years of its activities, has not yet achieved more substantial progress in improving the UN human rights record. The growing division of the UNHRC into regional blocs can weaken the role of the UNHRC. The European Parliament welcomed the EU's active participation in the first three years of functioning of the UNHRC and the fact that all of the resolutions proposed or co-sponsored by the EU have been approved by the UNHRC.
