Third and last day of debate, countries at the Human Rights Council were not wasting their time. The audience having been divided into two sides, and the most relevant countries leading both working papers, they focused all their efforts on convincing the remaining delegations, those who were still doubting, to vote for their resolution. Saudi Arabia, the Russian Federation, Brazil, Japan... and many others did such a great job, that a resolution was easily and loosely approved, and which defends the privacy over security, transparency or the right to information. The chairs, Miriam and Karla, didn't wait too much until they let them all celebrate the success of having reunited the will of the grand majority of countries present at the Council, which means at the same time a success for democracy and dialogue. The debate was officially closed, and after lunch awards were delivered to the best delegates in the council. This included the funny Saudi Arabian delegates, the Latin delegate from Brazil and the young delegate from Pakistan. We must say that the level of discussion acknowledged by the press during the three days at the Human Rights Council was amazing and many of the speeches were really well-built and performed. Congratulations. Oh, and congratulations to the chair and co-chair as well, and Tony, of course for such a happy and friendly atmosphere, unique at the C’MUN 2014. On the other hand, it is apparently this committee the one which has created the perfect frame for some romantic way of sharing, according to the C’mun informer.
