The role of the Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) countries at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is key to advance the promotion and protection of human rights in accordance with the Council’s mandate. Among other things, LAC countries votes have been instrumental to passing initiatives promoted under the leadership of the European Union (EU) and its member states. Yet, there seems to be an emergence of elements that could lead to changes in this vote composition, and therefore in the capacity to ensure the appropriate functioning of the Council to fulfil its mandate. The Multilateral Dialogue Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) Geneva would like to invite you to discuss the underlying clockworks of such developments, with a view to further engage with Geneva-based actors in the protection and promotion of human rights.
