The Human Rights Council of the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 29/11 at its twenty-ninth regular session in Geneva on 2 July 2015.
In recognizing the negative impact of corruption on human rights and sustainable development and the importance of anti-corruption education in combatting corruption, the resolution notes with appreciation the capacity-building activities and specialized curricula developed by relevant institutions, such as IACA.
The document comes just two months ahead of the major United Nations summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda in New York this September.
The Human Rights Council, whose 47 Member States are elected by the United Nations General Assembly, serves as an inter-governmental body within the United Nations system. It is responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe and for addressing situations of human rights violations and making recommendations on them.
IACA was welcomed to the United Nations General Assembly as an observer in December 2013.
