Country visits

The Special Rapporteur considers on-site visits an essential component of his/her mandate. The aim of such visits is to obtain first-hand information on the situation of the right to life in the countries visited, to report on his findings and to propose, in a spirit of cooperation and assistance, recommendations to improve situations identified as matters of concern.

The Special Rapporteur wishes to reiterate that an on-site visit does not entail the condemnation of a country. Instead, it is envisaged as an expression of concern and aims at improving his understanding of a particular situation to enable him to formulate useful recommendations. Also, visits do not have the character of a judicial inquiry; they cannot replace investigations by competent judicial authorities.
