Self-determination at the Human Rights Council

The root of addressing colonialism, decolonization and the rise the legacies of colonialism to address the right of self-determination at the Human Rights Council is based on the oppression of peoples, the drive to protect against exploitation of territory and resources. From the Charter of the United Nations to General Assembly resolution 60/251 to resolution 5/1 creating the Human Rights Council, the right of self-determination is preserved. Where do we go from here and how do we stop the politicization and double standards that prevent us from taking concrete steps to address the root causes of the denial of the right of self-determination. How can we compel States to move toward the obligation to promote and protect human rights?
