Protection of human rights

In 2008, the United Nations continued to protect human rights worldwide through several mechanisms. Its main organs—the Economic and Social Council, the General Assembly and the Security Council— remained actively engaged in protecting those rights. The Assembly’s Human Rights Council carried out its task as the central United Nations intergovernmental body responsible for promoting and protecting all human rights and fundamental freedoms. It addressed human rights violations, worked to prevent abuses, provided overall policy guidance, monitored the observance of human rights around the world and assisted States in fulfilling their human rights obligations.
