Diplomatic Avenue: UN High Commissioner for Human Rights discusses her role
Saturday, 1 December 2018
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet discusses her role as “a voice to the voiceless” and how her own struggle with rights in Chile led her to be the country’s president, and now, human rights commissioner at the UN.
Diplomatic Avenue is beamed live every month from Al Arabiya’s studios in the United Nations. Presented by Talal al-Haj, the show features interviews with high-level diplomats and decision makers, with video reports focusing on recent diplomatic developments and pressing issues. The program casts a critical eye over the work of the U.N. and its agencies, not only on the political front, but also on the humanitarian, cultural and scientific levels. The show gives its audience an insight into what goes on within the halls and corridors of the U.N., with a special emphasis on issues that matter to the Arab and Islamic worlds.
