Country Visits

An important part of the work of the Special Rapporteur is the conducting of country visits to assess in greater detail the situation of the judiciary and the wider legal system and, where appropriate, to make recommendations for its improvement.

A country visit can be initiated in two ways: through a request by the Special Rapporteur to the Government concerned to visit or by a Government directly inviting the Special Rapporteur. In both cases, the Government’s consent must be given before the mission takes place.

Reports on the missions are presented annually to the Human Rights Council as addenda to the main annual reports.
