UN Sclerosis and Role of NGOs at the Human Rights Council

UN Sclerosis and Role of NGOs at the Human Rights Councilshabait.com | Eritrea has come full circle, and the events during the 32nd Session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) brought a lot of issues to a head. As I watched the proceedings, it dawned on me that words like “impartiality”, “politically motivated” & “bias” were meaningless, as each game (against the member state) had its own rules.It was normal to be impartial in one game & ruthlessly partial in another; it was normal to decry political bias in one case, and ensure it in another; it was normal to cry foul about faulty methodology by some states in one case, but employ it to make a case against another. Truth was in the hands of the beholder, double standards and hypocrisy ruled…

Prominent “human rights organizations” played the vicious game too. Some abused their “consultative status” in order to advance certain political agendas in a twisted game of “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours”, exposing the malignant UN sclerosis that has undermined the confidence of states like Eritrea on the integrity and efficacy of the UN Human Rights Council. The western press described the events at the UNHRC and its conclusions as “Eritrea escaping censure”. But the truth is that the 32nd session brought many issues to the fore. It was not, in fact, Eritrea that was under scrutiny. It was rather the UN Human Rights Council itself – its credibility, integrity and efficacy – that were put on the limelight. Read more
