India was re-elected to the Human Rights Council on Oct. 14 for another three-year term, starting next year with a pledge to bring its pluralistic, moderate and balanced perspective to straddle various divides or differences in the Council.

India's manifesto for the election emphasized that the promotion and protection of human rights were best served by "dialogue, cooperation and constructive and collaborative engagement".
