CINAT Checklist for Candidature to Special Rapporteur Mandate

Monday, January 25, 2010

The Coalition of International NGOs Against Torture (CINAT) has jointly developed a checklist of suggested criteria to be considered in selecting the next UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. Special Rapporteur Nowak's term expires in November 2010, and careful consideration is required to maintain the high quality of appointments to this important position. This checklist is intended as an interpretive aid to the relevant provisions of Human Rights Council Resolution 5/1 on Institution-building of 18 June 2007. View the CINAT Checklist.
