Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
2
June 2006
Whereas: 
  1. The Human Rights Commission of the United Nations has ceased to exist and the new Human Rights Council has come into existence;
  2. There are a large number of Special Rapporteurs and special procedures whose existence depends on resolutions of the Human Rights Commission and whose expertise we do not want to lose;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR call upon the Canadian government and other governments to support the renewal of all of the current mandates of Special Rapporteurs and special non-conventional procedures of the United Nations in order not to lose their expertise.

Working Group: 
Inland Protection
