UN Rights Council: Voting Records Exposed

By Huiyu Yin

The updated “VotesCount” website published the voting records of United Nations Human Rights Council members, organized by their votes on situations in individual countries during 2014.

“Countries often hide behind their regional groups or the political dynamics at the Human Rights Council, but each has a role in the council's successes and failures,” said John Fisher, the Geneva director at Human Rights Watch. “Each council member should be held accountable for its votes and for its leadership, which our VotesCount website makes easily accessible.”
