The leadership of the International Human Rights Commission Geneva Africa Region has appointed Prof. Michael Kwateng, a member of the committee in Africa and president of IHRC Ghana, as the Committee's Executive Secretary.
This was contained in a statement issued by the committee on the 16th of August 2022. The committee comprises seven (7) Coordinators/Envoys representing their various countries in Africa.
The International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) Geneva, Switzerland has offices in all Member states of the United Nations (UN) across Asia, Africa, America, Europe, and the Middle East working with a legal status as required by law contained in a Charter signed with the UN on the 23rd December, 2003 at the United Nations of Geneva (UNOG). The IHRC serves as the eye of the world on issues of Human Rights abuses with proper and fair reporting to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) aside engaging in other humanitarian activities. The IHRC Africa Region was therefore set up by the IHRC-Geneva with the mandate to perform the functions and duties as enshrined in the latter’s charter.
