At its twenty-fourth session, Council adopted resolution 24/14 (A/HRC/RES/24/14 - A | E | F | R | S) on human rights and unilateral coercive measures, in which requests the Advisory Committee prepare a research-based report containing recommendations on mechanism to assess the negative impact of unilateral coercive measures on the enjoyment of human rights and to promote accountability, and to present a progress report of the requested research-based report to the 28th session of the Council (March 2015).

The resolution also requests the OHCHR to organize, prior to the 27th session, a workshop on the impact of the application of unilateral coercive measures on the enjoyment of human rights by the affected populations, in particular their socioeconomic impact on women and children, in the States targeted, and prepare a report on the proceedings of the workshop and to submit it to the 27th session of the Council (September 2014).
