Reform of UN’s Human Rights Commission expected this week

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan says a decision on the reform of the United Nations’ Human Rights Commission into a more powerful Human Rights Council is expected to be made by the end of the week. Yesterday, the UN Human Rights Commission adjourned their meeting in Geneva in anticipation of a major decision over its future, which is currently being discussed in the UN in New York. Speaking in Cape Town on the second day of his three-day official visit, Annan made special mention of South Africa’s role in resolving conflicts in the DRC, Cote d’Ivoire, Burundi and Darfur.
