    Human Rights Council

    Resolution 7/11. The role of good governance in the promotion and
    protection of human rights

    The Human Rights Council,
    Guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard
    of achievement of all peoples and all nations applying to every individual and every
    organ of society, and also the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, which
    affirmed that all human rights are universal, indivisible, interdependent and
    Recalling Commission on Human Rights resolution 2005/68 of 20 April 2005
    and all previous relevant resolutions on the role of the good governance in the
    promotion of human rights, as well as the United Nations Millennium Declaration,
    Recognizing the importance of a conducive environment, at both the national
    and the international levels, for the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental
    freedoms and of the mutually reinforcing relationship between good governance and
    human rights,
    Recognizing also that transparent, responsible, accountable and participatory
    government, responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people, including women
    and members of vulnerable and marginalized groups, is the foundation on which good
    governance rests and that such a foundation is an indispensable condition for the full
    realization of human rights, including the right to development,
    Emphasizing that democracies have embedded institutional advantages
    incontestably favourable to sustainable development, and that when based on the
    respect for human rights, they provide political incentives to Governments to respond
    to the needs and demands of the people, allow for more informed and extensive policy
    dialogue, are more adaptable, and create necessary checks and balances on
    Government power,
    Reaffirming the leading role played by the United Nations in developing and
    promoting democracy and human rights, and recognizing the role of other processes,
    including the International Conference of New or Restored Democracies and the
    Community of Democracies,
    Reaffirming also the importance of international and regional cooperation,
    when required by the States in need, in order to facilitate the implementation of good
    governance and anti-corruption practices at all levels,
    Stressing that good governance at the national and international levels is
    essential for sustained economic growth, sustainable development and the eradication
    of poverty and hunger, as reflected in the 2005 World Summit Outcome,
    Noting with satisfaction the outcomes of the respective conferences of the
    Community of Democracies, held in Warsaw in 2000, in Seoul in 2002, in Santiago in
    2005 and in Bamako in 2007, at which the States committed themselves to build on
    shared principles and goals to promote democracy in all regions of the world, to
    support the integrity of democratic processes in societies on the democratic path and
    to coordinate policies to enhance the effectiveness of democratic governance,
    Realizing that the fight against corruption at all levels plays an important role
    in the promotion and protection of human rights and in the process of creating an
    environment conducive to their full enjoyment,
    Recognizing the increasing awareness in the international community of the
    detrimental impact of widespread corruption on human rights, through both the
    weakening of institutions and the erosion of public trust in government, as well as
    through the impairment of the ability of Governments to fulfil their human rights
    obligations, particularly the economic and social rights of the most vulnerable and
    Recognizing also that effective anti-corruption measures and the protection of
    human rights are mutually reinforcing and that the promotion and protection of human
    rights is essential to the fulfilment of all aspects of an anti-corruption strategy,
    Noting with attention the outcome of the first and second sessions of the
    Conference of the States parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption,
    held in Dead Sea, Jordan, in 2006, and in Bali, Indonesia, in 2008,
    1. Welcomes the note by the United Nations High Commissioner for
    Human Rights transmitting the report on the United Nations Conference on anticorruption,
    good governance and human rights, held in Warsaw, on 8 and 9
    November 2006, by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and
    noting the main themes discussed during the seminar:
    (a) The impact of corruption on human rights;
    (b) Human rights and good governance in the fight against corruption;
    (c) The role of civil society, the private sector and the media;
    (d) Fighting corruption while safeguarding human rights;
    2. Invites States to consider ratifying or acceding to the United Nations
    Convention against Corruption and to promote transparency, accountability,
    prevention and enforcement as key principles of anti-corruption efforts;
    3. Welcomes the publication of the Office of the United Nations High
    Commissioner for Human Rights entitled “Good Governance Practices for the
    Protection of Human Rights”, pursuant to Commission on Human Rights resolution
    2005/68, and requests the Office of the High Commissioner to prepare a publication
    on anti-corruption, good governance and human rights, drawing on the results of the
    Warsaw conference;
    4. Decides to continue its consideration of the question of the role of
    good governance, including the issue of the fight against corruption in the promotion
    and protection of human rights, at a future session.
