Un: parallel event at the HRC on “lack of reporting of cases of reprisals – exploring ways forward”

Jun 9, 2011 | Events

Human Rights Council Resolution 12/2 invites the Secretary-General to provide a ‘compilation and analysis of any available information’ of alleged reprisals and to formulate ‘recommendations on how to address the issues of intimidation and reprisals’.

NGO experience highlights the lack of protection for victims of reprisals and the resulting reluctance to report such cases. The absence of broader and more long-term recommendations on addressing reprisals compounds this lack of protection. This panel discussion seeks to explore ways in which various actors can raise awareness about and increase the effectiveness of the Council’s efforts to combat reprisals, including by improving protection for those concerned.
