Human Rights Council

Global, regional and local impact

APC implements projects nationally, regionally, and globally. Members and partners play a crucial role in the level of impact achieved.

    APC participates at the UN Human Rights Council, an intergovernmental body responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe. As part of a growing network of civil society, APC engages in the Council to raise awareness and build support for internet rights. Our participation includes the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), a unique process coordinated by the HRC, involving a review of the human rights records of all UN member states.
