Recommendations of Special Procedures

Special procedures regularly make recommendations to countries and other stakeholders in their reports to the Human Rights Council.

Resolution 2004/76 of the Commission on Human Rights requested the High Commissioner to continue to prepare a comprehensive and regularly updated electronic compilation of special procedures‘ recommendations by country, where such does not yet exist.  The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has thus compiled these recommendations on an annual basis.

Since 2006 all recommendations contained in country visit reports by special procedures are also accessible through the Universal Human Rights Index. These recommendations can be searched by topic, right, mandate, region or country. The Index also provides direct access to the reports in which the recommendations are included. When using the “Advanced search” of the Universal Human Rights Index, a list of all recommendations made by all special procedures mandates on a particular topic, region or country can be generated.
