The Human Rights Council in its resolution 17/6, broadly defines the mandate of the Independent Expert on human rights and international solidarity as the promotion of “the realization of the right of peoples and individuals to international solidarity.” In order to pursue this goal, the Independent Expert is authorized “to seek views and contributions from Governments, United Nations agencies, other relevant international organizations and non-governmental organizations.” 

Country visits are an important method of promoting the Independent Expert’s mandate. They focus on the collection, study and observation of information, regarding the policies and actual practices of States that are relevant to the Independent Expert’s mandate. Read more about country visits.
