US moves to re-join UN Rights Council

Date: 09 February 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • The Biden administration is set to announce that it will reengage with U.N. Human Rights Council that former President Donald Trump withdrew from almost three years ago.
  • The decision reverses another Trump-era move away from multilateral organizations and agreements. It is likely to draw criticism from conservative lawmakers and many in the pro-Israel community.
  • Trump pulled out of the world body's main human rights agency in 2018 due to its disproportionate focus on Israel, which has received by far the largest number of critical council resolutions against any country.
  • In addition to the council’s persistent focus on Israel, the Trump administration took issue with the body’s membership, which currently includes China, Cuba, Eritrea, Russia, and Venezuela, all of which have been accused of human rights abuses.
