Spain's candidature for the Human Rights Council 2018-2020

Spain's candidature for the Human Rights Council 2018-2020

​Spain is a country profoundly committed to human rights, both internally and in its government activity abroad. The protection and promotion of human rights therefore constitute a core priority of our foreign policy.

​We have assumed wide-ranging obligations in the protection of human rights and we regularly subject ourselves to the supervision of treaty bodies. We are signatories to a broad range of international treaties and fundamental optional protocols in this area and we maintain an open and ongoing invitation to all Special Procedures to visit our country.


Five years on from our first presence on the Human Rights Council (2010-2013), and taking advantage of the stimulus provided by our recent mandate as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, Spain attributes a fundamental importance to being able to form part of the main United Nations human rights body in the period 2018-2020. This has been demonstrated by its institutions, but above all by Spanish society in general.


Spain's candidature is based on four key elements: dignity, universality, cooperation and efficacy.
