The Human Rights Council, which replaces the former Commission of Human Rights since the 15 March 2006, is based in Geneva being the most relevant intergovernmental political body for the promotion of human rights and enjoying a wide range of operational autonomy. At the same time, the two main High Commissioners of the United Nations, the Refugees and the Human Rights Commissioners, are also located in Geneva.

Its Director-General is appointed by the UN Secretary-General and represents him in all activities of the Organization in Geneva. Mr. Michael Møller, designated by Ban Ki-moon, holds the position since June 30, 2015.  
 
The Director-General, in his capacity of personal representative of the Secretary-General, also holds the position of Secretary General of the Conference on Disarmament (UNODA), which sits in Geneva.
 
The role of UNOG and its Director General is to organize and facilitate the activities that the Agencies and International Organizations carry out in Geneva. On the other hand, the UN operates centrally for numerous issues, such as the staff recruitment or the legal reports, accountable to New York.
 
The main role of the UNOG is to provide administrative, financial, support, organizational, security and Protocol services to the more than 20 International Organizations, Agencies and Departments of the UN system, based in Geneva, Turin and Bonn.
