Globalising Human Rights:
A Conservative Agenda for UN Reform

The report, Globalising Human Rights: A Conservative Agenda for UN Reform, has been submitted to the Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague MP. It analyses the performance of the UN Human Rights Council and calls for a “culture change” within the UN. Countries belonging to the Human Rights Council should be required to address their own human rights records before election, a Democracy Caucus should be established within the UN to balance other influential blocks, and “in the most extreme cases, the threat of expulsion – or suspension – can be used as leverage more effectively than it is now”.
