Where can I find oral statements of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, specifically during Human Rights Council sessions?
Last Updated: Jan 06, 2017
The UN Human Rights (OHCHR) website has a listing of the statements of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (currently Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein).
The Human Rights Council website may be helpful. It includes links to statements and documentation, mostly by session.
Additionally, the Library database, "Index to Speeches", has many of the High Commissioner's oral statements in front of other UN bodies. Linked below are the results for the keywords "UN High Commissioner for Human Rights" in the dropdown search box under Country/Organization.
