, Index number: IOR 41/001/2011

The principal challenge in the review of the Human Rights Council is the need for improvement in the working culture of the Council. This paper focuses on elements that Amnesty International has identified as central to any discussion to improve the Human Rights Council’s work and functioning. Amnesty International urges governments to support the recommendations identified in this paper and to do their outmost to ensure that the Human Rights Council that emerges from the 2011 reviews is strong, effective and authoritative and fulfils fully its mandate.
