** Note: Prior to September 2011 the UN system did not clearly demark or assign all individual cases/communications/complaints to each state, so results in this category may vary going forward as a result of this methodological shift. Though these cases are largely driven by the individual, rather than reflecting the priorities, preferences or biases of the UN system and its member states, they are included here where a UN actor chooses to mention, investigate or judge such a case. "Including cases" should be chosen if a result is sought which includes all actions, bearing in mind that the result will reflect greater initiative and pressure from outside the UN system, than if individual cases are excluded.
