In advance of the Human Rights Council elections that will take place this autumn for the membership term 2019-2021, Amnesty International and the International Service for Human Rights will hold a pledging event for candidate States in New York on 5 September 2018.

The event is co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of Australia, Chile and Nepal, and is intended to give candidates an opportunity to present their visions for Council membership and to respond to questions from a range of stakeholders on how they propose to realise the pledges and commitments they may have made in seeking election.

State representatives and civil society are invited to participate actively in the event and pose questions to candidate States.

You will require a UN Grounds Pass to attend the event. If you do not have a UN Grounds Pass, please RSVP here by Friday 31 August, 6 PM EST.

Can’t make it but have a question for one (or all) of the candidates?

Follow the event live on UN Web TV: and submit questions to candidates via Twitter: #HRCpledging

A mirror event will be held in Geneva on 11 September.

Stay in the loop!
