Spain elected to UN Human Right Council 2018-2020
Spain has been elected, for only the second time in its history, as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for the period 2018-2020. The Spanish candidature received 180 votes in favour at the elections held on Monday, 16 October in New York. Our country, together with Australia, will hold the two vacancies in the regional group ‘Western Europe and Others’.
The election constitutes the recognition and expression of confidence in Spain and the commitment of the public authorities and Spanish society to human rights. At an internal level, the defence and protection of fundamental rights and liberties has become an underlying principle and cross-cutting pillar of the government’s decisions. At an international level, the defence and promotion of human rights constitutes one of the priorities of Spanish foreign policy and cooperation.
