Concluding observations and recommendations on outcomes at the 47th session of the UN Human Rights Council HRC47
Several steps were taken at the 47th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC47), held from 21 June to 14 July 2021, to tackle a number of critical global human rights challenges and crisis situations, despite significant resistance from different quarters, though in other areas action fell significantly short of expectations. This briefing paper presents observations on some of the key outcomes and developments that were priorities for Amnesty International, together with recommendations to states on necessary follow-up actions. It does not cover all of the many important issues considered during HRC47.
