Egypt is running for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council

  • Egypt will promote the constructive role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society at large in the “promotion of human rights at all levels”
  • Egypt has played a “key role” in the advancement of “human rights and fundamental freedoms”
  • Continue to support initiatives and processes to advance the “empowerment of women” and “equality between men and women”
  • Egypt as contributed to the “enhancement of the system” of international protection for “migrants, refugees and asylum seekers”
