Special Procedures

The Special Procedures of the Human Rights Council is made up of independent human rights experts with mandates to report and advise on human rights from a thematic or country-specific perspective. The Special Procedures system is a central element to the United Nations human rights machinery and covers all aspects of human rights, be they civil, cultural, economic, political, or social.

As of August 1, 2017, there are 44 thematic and 12 country mandates. Since 2011, this includes a mandate established on account of the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Impact Iran works with other organizations and uses its media presence to provide evidence of Iran’s ongoing human rights violations to ensure that the HRC renews the mandate on an annual basis.
