The United Nations Human Rights Council will hold its twenty-eighth regular session from 2 to 27 March 2015 in the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein will open the session, commencing a four-day High-Level Segment during which senior dignitaries will address the 47-member Council on human rights matters of national interest and concern.

Highlights of the four-week session include presentations by the independent Commissions of Inquiry on Syria, Eritrea and the 2014 Gaza Conflict. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights will present a report on the human rights situation in Iraq in light of abuses committed by the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and associated terrorist groups.

A high level panel discussion on human rights mainstreaming, and a full-day discussion on the impact of climate change on human rights will take place in the opening week. The subjects of other significant meetings include the death penalty, the rights of the child, national policies and human rights and technical cooperation.

The human rights situations in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Iran, Myanmar, the occupied Palestinian territories, Central African Republic, Côte d'Ivoire, Haiti and Mali will also be discussed. (UNHRC)
