Implementation of Human Rights Council resolution 31/36
Human Rights Council
- This resolution perpetuates the Human Rights Council's discriminatory database of companies doing business with Israeli settlements by requesting funding for the mandate and annual updates from the High Commissioner. This UNHRC database unfairly singles out Israel and targets it for economic harm. The Human Rights Council does not produce a database of companies doing business in any other occupied territory or conflict area.
