Rapporteur’s Digest on Freedom of Religion or Belief

Excerpts of the Reports from 1986 to 2011 by the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief Arranged by Topics of the Framework for Communications

 

The Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief is an independent expert appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council. The mandate holder has been invited to identify existing and emerging obstacles to the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion or belief and present recommendations on ways and means to overcome such obstacles.
Historical background
The United Nations Commission on Human Rights appointed further to resolution 1986/20 a ―Special Rapporteur on religious intolerance‖. In 2000, the Commission on Human Rights decided to change the mandate title to ―Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief‖, which was subsequently endorsed by ECOSOC decision 2000/261 and welcomed by General Assembly resolution 55/97. On 18 June 2010, the Human Rights Council adopted resolution 14/11 which, inter alia, extended the mandate of the Special Rapporteur for a further period of three years.
