During the 51 session, the Council will consider thematic issues including water and sanitation, unilateral coercive measures, contemporary forms of slavery, right to development, right to privacy in the digital age, truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence, arbitrary detention, international order, the rights of indigenous peoples and people of African descent, mercenaries, older persons, hazardous substances and waste and enforced or involuntary disappearances.

Country-specific topics include an interactive dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on Afghanistan and an enhanced interactive dialogue on the human rights situation of women and girls in Afghanistan, to be held on 12 September. An interactive dialogue with the Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine is set for 23 September and an interactive dialogue on the High Commissioner’s oral update on Ukraine for 4 October. Other country specific interactive dialogues will be held on Sri Lanka, Nicaragua, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Syrian Arab Republic, Burundi, Belarus, Venezuela, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Cambodia, Somalia, Philippines and Central African Republic. Additionally, the Acting High Commissioner will present the report on the implementation of technical assistance and capacity-building for Cambodia, Georgia and Yemen on 6 October.

There will be five Panel discussions held during HRC51, including the Biennial Panel on the Right to Development (15 September), the Annual Discussion on Integration of a Gender Perspective (26 September), a Panel on the Right to Work in Connection to Climate Change Actions (27 September), the Annual Panel on Rights of Indigenous Peoples (28 September), and finally a Panel on the Negative Impact of Colonialism on Human Rights on 28 September.
