The Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is a body of the United Nations that is supposed to identify and publicize violators of human rights. Some countries, however, have been able to get elected to the commission and use their membership to conceal their human rights violations, such as genocide and crimes against humanity. Examples include China, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan. The UNHRC was created in 2006, replacing the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

The United States of America and its allies consider the US to be the world's foremost defender of human rights, but America's opponents have used selective citations to make the U.S. look bad and other countries look good. On June 19, 2018, the Trump Administration announced it would leave the UNHRC due to its hypocrisy and bias against Israel.[1] In August 2018, the UNHRC chose Chilean socialist Michelle Bachelet to lead the agency.[2]
