In advance of the Human Rights Council election on 17 October, Amnesty International and the International Service for Human Rights will hold a pledging event for recently-confirmed Council candidates. As at the HRC Pledging Events held in September, this meeting is intended to give the additional candidates an opportunity to present their vision for Council membership. They will also respond to questions from a range of stakeholders on their human rights records and pledges.

Please join us! You are invited to actively participate in the event and pose questions to the candidate States.

You will require a UN Grounds Pass to attend the event. 

You can also follow the event and submit questions to the candidates on Twitter using #HRCpledging.
