Annual reports

The Special Rapporteur, pursuant to resolutions adopted by the Economic and Social Council and the Commission on Human Rights, has annually submitted a report to the Commission on Human Rights. These reports contain a description of his/her activities and working methods, summaries of communications between the Special Rapporteur and Governments and, if appropriate, observations on the situation of the right to life in specific countries. Moreover, the Special Rapporteur includes in his report a general analysis of the phenomenon of extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, as well as conclusions and recommendations in this respect. The report is publicly discussed by the Commission on Human Rights at its annual session, a discussion in which representatives of both Governments and non-governmental organizations actively participate and which so far has always led to the adoption of a resolution on the subject. Reports on country visits are usually presented to the annual session of the Commission on Human rights as addenda to the main annual reports. In 1996, for the first time, the Commission invited the Special Rapporteur to submit a report to the General Assembly (see table below) on the situation worldwide with regard to summary or arbitrary executions and his recommendations to combat the phenomenon.
