Protection of human rights

In 2007, the United Nations remained actively engaged in protecting human rights, mostly through the activities of its main organs—the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council—and the Human Rights Council, which assumed the functions of the Commission on Human Rights in 2006.
