What is it?
The Human Rights Council is a group of people (a committee) from around the world who are meant to encourage the support and protection of the human rights around the world.
The Human Rights Council is there to take the complaints that are made about the government in any part of the world. This group is made of people from around the world to make sure that the complaints are treated fairly, taken seriously and dealt with quickly and in a fair way.
