OHCHR and good governance

The Human Rights Council has held a number of thematic discussions on good governance issues and has requested OHCHR to prepare studies, reports and summary reports for consideration. Each resolution requests OHCHR to focus on particular topics to provide guidance and recommendations for UN Member States, civil society organisations and other stakeholders.

Reports have also been issued by other mandates relating indirectly to Good Governance, and these can be found on the Related reports page.
