Annual reports to the Human Rights Council


Special procedures mandate holders are requested by the Council (formerly the Commission) to present annual reports in which they describe the activities undertaken during the previous year. The annual reports discuss general issues concerning: working methods, theoretical analysis, general trends and developments with regard to their respective mandate and may contain general recommendations. Reports may also contain summaries of all communications transmitted to Governments and the replies received unless contained in addenda to the annual report. Reports on country visits are usually presented as addenda to the annual reports. Some mechanisms are requested to present an interim report to the UN General Assembly which meets from September to December.
