UN Human Rights Chief launches new management plan

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay presented the OHCHR Management Plan for 2014-2017 to Member States at the United Nations in Geneva.
 
“This Management Plan is my last as High Commissioner, but as the first plan that spans four years it represents a new opening for the Office,” Pillay said. “I believe that this horizon will enable our teams to work with clear goals and a sense of perspective, as OHCHR engages with all partners to pursue the enjoyment of all human rights for all.”
