In March 2011, in response to escalating violations of international law and Iran’s ongoing non-cooperation with UN human rights mechanisms, the United Nations Human Rights Council mandated a Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Despite the Iranian government’s open hostility to his mandate, the Special Rapporteur has generated impartial documentation of human rights violations in the country while encouraging large segments of Iranian society to participate in the human rights process.

The continuation of the mandate is vitally necessary to help prioritize the situation in Iran and to provide Iranian authorities with an opportunity to address the country’s human rights issues.
