The UN General Assembly on Friday voted for Denmark to become a member of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the next three years. It will be the first time that Denmark has a seat at the UNHRC table, which it will hold from 2019 to 2021. “Membership allows us an important platform to promote the values that Denmark is founded upon. We will defend our freedom rights and the liberal world order and we will work towards a credible council which tackles the most serious crimes against human rights wherever they may occur,” said Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen.
