On 12 May, the 34th Special Session of the UN Human Rights Council on the deteriorating human rights situation in Ukraine stemming from the Russian aggression took place in Geneva.

Key votes at the 49th UN Human Rights Council and Suspension of Russian membership

Map of the Month 04/2022

The 49th UN Human Rights Council convened in Geneva from February 28 to April 1, 2022. It was the longest session in the Council's history and a particular test for multilateral diplomacy, not only because of the situation in Ukraine. In addition to the emergency session and the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine, there were other important votes, including on the extension of the mandate of the UN High Commissioner to further investigate human rights violations in Belarus or the establishment of a group of human rights experts on Nicaragua. Numerous joint statements were delivered, including on the human rights situation in Russia and in Yemen. Meanwhile, China, once again spoke out in favor of a state-centered "human rights dialogue" and a modified role for the Office of the UN High Commissioner in order to avoid criticism and scrutiny.

Map of the Month 03/2022

On 25 March 2022, the Governing Body, the executive organ of the ILO, will elect the new ILO Director-General. The Governing Body is composed of 56 regular members (28 Governments, 14 Employers members, and 14 Workers members). Ten of the regular government seats are permanently held by countries of major industrial importance, including Germany, China, the USA, and Russia. The other Government members are elected by the Conference every three years (the last elections were held in June 2014). The Employer and Worker members are elected in their individual capacity. There are also 66 deputy members (28 governments, 19 employers, and 19 workers), which are not shown on this map. This map depicts the regular members and their respective functions.

Central votes and positioning on Russian aggression against Ukraine

Map of the Month 03/2022

The Russian aggression against Ukraine was strongly condemned in numerous UN bodies. In the course of the past week, the pressure on the Russian Federation increased visibly. At the beginning of the week, the UN Human Rights Council had voted on holding an urgent debate. Five member states had spoken out against it. Towards the end of the week, an independent commission of enquiry on the situation in Ukraine was set up with only Eritrea voting alongside Russia against it. The text of the resolution also notes the decision by the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to proceed with opening an investigation into the situation in Ukraine, as rapidly as possible. 39 states had so far officially referred the situation in Ukraine to the ICC. The UN General Assembly in New York also strongly condemned the Russian invasion in a historic "Uniting for Peace" resolution.
