Chad – UN Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT)

In September 2007, the Security Council, by its resolution 1778, approved the establishment in Chad and the Central African Republic, in concert with the European Union, of a multidimensional presence in the CAR and in Chad with the aim to help create the security conditions conducive to a voluntary, secure and sustainable return of refugees and internally displaced persons.

MINURCAT was being established at the time of writing. The Mission will have a human rights component,which will have the following mandate:

  • contribute to the monitoring and to the promotion and protection of human rights, with particular attention to sexual and gender-based violence, and recommend action to the competent authorities, with a view to fighting impunity;
  • support efforts aimed at strengthening the capacity of the Governments of Chad and the Central African Republic and civil society through training in international human rights standards, and efforts to put an end to recruitment and use of children by armed groups;
  • assist the Governments of Chad and, notwithstanding the mandate of BONUCA, the Central African Republic in the promotion of the rule of law, including through support for an independent judiciary and a strengthened legal system, in close coordination with UN agencies.
