Next October, the UN General Assembly will vote on the renewal of one third of the members of the Human Rights Council. The Latin American and Caribbean Group has 8 seats, and will renew 3 of them. Cuba announced its candidacy, and is going for its fifth term.
Will Chile, Peru and Mexico stand for re-election? Will other candidates emerge? What will the position of the regional countries be?
