20th Anniversary of the Office of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
20 years ago, on 20 December 1993, the General Assembly voted to create the post of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, acting on a recommendation from delegates to the World Conference on Human Rights held in Vienna earlier the same year.
To mark this anniversary the UN Human Rights Office has launched a dedicated website and hosted several events.
