UN Human Rights Chief Zeid addresses the 27th Human Rights Council session

In his first address to the Human Rights Council, newly appointed UN Human Rights Chief, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, highlights world conflicts, Sustainable Development Goals and the human rights situation of migrants around the globe.
Paying homage to the achievements of former High Commissioner Navi Pillay and her predecessors, Zeid described the priority areas his Office will continue to focus on during his tenure, including strengthening the UN human rights machinery and injecting a human rights perspective into the Sustainable Development Goals.
A hundred and five Member States and over a dozen NGOs took the floor during the General Debate that followed Zeid’s update.
