Summaries of Special Procedures Reports
Wednesday, 05 March 2008 13:01

 

ISHR used to produce the Reports in Short, unofficial summaries of all the reports submitted to the Human Rights Council by special procedures. However, we have decided to discontinue this publication. Below you will find all the Reports in Short grouped by the session at which the reports were considered. 

 

The official summaries prepared by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) now contain an 'executive summary'. To download the official reports, please visit the OHCHR website.
