Introduction

On 29 September 2011, the Human Rights Council adopted resolution18/7, in which it decided to appoint, for a period of three years, a Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence. The Special Rapporteur shall deal with situations in which there have been gross violations of human rights and serious violations of international humanitarian law.

In 2017, the Human Rights Council adopted the resolution 36/7 which extended the mandate of the Special Rapporteur for a further period of three years.

In the resolution, the Human Rights Council expresses its expectation that the implementation of a comprehensive approach to the four elements of this mandate (truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence) should help “ensure accountability, serve justice, provide remedies to victims, promote healing and reconciliation, establish independent oversight of the security system and restore confidence in the institutions of the State and promote the rule of law in accordance with international human rights law”. More broadly, these proximate aims are expected to contribute to the accomplishment of the following goals: “preventing the recurrence of crises and future violations of human rights, to ensure social cohesion, nation-building, ownership and inclusiveness at the national and local levels and to promote reconciliation”.
