Chapter Summary

The UN activities in the domain of human rights are carried out by a rather opaque ensemble of procedures and organs. In general, the UN organs are classified on the ground of their juridical basis: 'charter-based organs' on the one hand and 'treaty-based organs' on the other hand. The first group entails the six principal organs, the functional commissions of the Economic and Social Council and the sub-commissions founded by these functional commissions. Among those, the Commission on Human Rights is the central human rights body. The 'charter-based organs' have a much broader mandate to promote awareness, to foster respect, and to respond to violations of human rights standards. The 'treaty-based organs' are the bodies that were established by specific treaties. The CRC Committee is classified under this group. The 'treaty-based organs' bear the responsibility for monitoring the implementation of the provisions of the treaties concerned.
