OHCHR and migration

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) prepares a range of reports on topics related to the human rights of migrants. These reports are requested by and presented to the Human Rights Council and/or the General Assembly. In order to prepare these reports OHCHR addresses a note verbale to Member States and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, seeking their views and relevant information on the scope and content of the report.
