Resolution Creating the Special Rapporteur and The Mandate


The Mandate (Commission on Human Rights Resolution 1993/2 A)

4. Decides to appoint a special rapporteur with the following mandate:

(a) To investigate Israel's violations of the principles and bases of international law, international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, in the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since 1967;

(b) To receive communications, to hear witnesses, and to use such modalities of procedure as he may deem necessary for his mandate;

(c) To report, with his conclusions and recommendations, to the Commission on Human Rights at its future sessions, until the end of the Israeli occupation of those territories;

The mandate is only to investigate what has been decided already to be Israel's violations. Any investigation of violations by Palestinians or other Arabs is deliberately not required.

The mandate of the special rapporteur is for an indefinite period of time and does not need to be reviewed or renewed. This is in marked contrast to every other country-specific special rapporteur created by the UN Commission on Human Rights or the UN Council on Human Rights.
