The 48th UN Human Rights Council convened in Geneva from September 13 to October 11, 2021. Important votes were held, among other things, on a special rapporteur on Afghanistan, on the termination of the mandate of the Group of Eminent Experts on Yemen or on the recognition of the right to a clean and healthy environment and the establishment of a special rapporteur on climate change and human rights. On October 14, the new members of the UN Human Rights Council were elected in the UN General Assembly in New York.
