Human Rights Council: joint statement by NGOs at the 18th annual meeting of the special procedures
During the Annual Meeting of the Special Procedures of the UN Human Rights Council, representatives from several international NGOs made statements and recommendations.
With the aim of being able to follow up on, and develop, the comments and recommendations made at that meeting, NGOs came together to compile the various oral statements made into a single statement.
Committed to supporting the work of the Special Procedures, the NGO signatories sought to provide constructive and useful recommendations to all mandate holders on a few specific areas in the hope that the system of Special Procedures can become even more robust and effective.
