'A challenging year' for UN rights body, says outgoing president

Sihasak Phuangketkeow

The UN Human Rights Council made history in March this year when it suspended Libya's membership for committing violence against its own people.

It has also had to deal with the rapid, evolving events in the Middle East labelled the "Arab Spring."

Sihasak Phuangketkeow, President of the Council, says it has been "a challenging year".

As he hands over the reigns to the Council's first elected woman, Sihasak Phuangketkeow relives some of his best and worst moments with Patrick Maigua.
