Luxembourg – candidate to the Human Rights Council (2022-2024)

The promotion and protection of human rights is a priority for the Government of Luxembourg both domestically and in the implemen­tation of its foreign policy in all its aspects.

As a founding member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, and the European Union, Luxembourg has always been an outspoken advo­cate of multilateralism and universal values. We have upheld this com­mitment during our mandate as an elected member of the United Nations Security Council in 2013- 2014 and as a proactive observer to the Human Rights Council since its establishment in 2006.

For the first time, Luxembourg is presenting its candidacy to the Human Rights Council, for the 2022- 2024 term. In doing so, Luxembourg will continue to honour its commit­ment to multilateralism and vows to dedicate its tenure as a member of the Human Rights Council to the protection of the rights of all human beings.
