Aiming to encourage and support Permanent Missions to the UN in Geneva and New York to mainstream the rights of persons with disabilities across intergovernmental negotiations, the International Disability Alliance (IDA) elaborated the present compilation of relevant HRC Resolutions from 2010 to 2018. This compilation considers the UN agreed language in all HRC resolutions, approved at its regular sessions from March 2010 to March 2018. Its practical nature allows the use of all resolutions by name, session and year of approval, with a detailed list of sponsors and co-sponsors. All references that are considered directly or indirectly relevant, of interest or that can be strengthened in the future were retained. Paragraphs are identified as per in negotiations, meaning, by preliminary paragraphs (PP) and operative paragraphs (OP). Links to available versions in different UN official languages were provided. The structure of the compilation is divided as following: - Specific resolutions of persons with disabilities - Resolutions on specific groups or specific rights - Resolutions on specific or general thematic - Country-specific resolutions BACKGROUND INFORMATION The UN Human Rights Council (HRC) is part of the United Nations system and, as such, is comprised by UN State members. It works through debates, interactive discussions, call of studies, reports and decisions with the aim to strengthen the promotion and protection of all human rights worldwide as well as to address situations of human rights violations. As such, the HRC has the mandate to address all thematic human rights issues and situations that require its attention.1 The HRC - as several UN bodies - expresses their views and political commitments by way of resolutions, which are formal texts, negotiated and adopted during a HRC session. While these Resolutions are not legally binding under the International Law, but soft law , they represent strong States’ political expression - “if not legally, at least morally”2 - of adherence to the substantive messages and “pave the way for the development of binding law.” 3 1 See further information about the Human Rights Council at 2 Walter Kalin and Jorg Kunzil, The law of international human rights protection, (2009), p 74 & 75. 3 Idem, p 75. The Human Rights Council debates the rights of persons with disabilities during its March session each year, in particular at the annual Panel on the rights of persons with disabilities and the Interactive Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the rights of persons with disabilities. In addition, at its June and September sessions, the HRC’s work may include issues related to the rights of persons with disabilities - in a mainstream way – under any related agenda, for instance, during the full day of discussions on women’s rights or under the work session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous peoples.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
