Chapter Summary

Human rights were made a core component in the mandate of the four Executive Committees. As a part of the reform OHCHR is actively involved together with humanitarian and development partners on ongoing work on transition, in order to strengthen the role of human rights as a common denominator providing a bridge between relief and development. The humanitarian community (including actors outside the UN) is increasingly concerned about the "humanitarian identity" becoming blurred, advocating for further separation from political, military, and human rights actors. OHCHR should analyze existing policy and practice for institutional arrangements in missions (for example, the 1999 ECPS paper on principles of human rights integration, the Secretary-General's reform, the Brahimi report), as well as language options for SC mandates for human rights components, with a mind to formulating a standard policy on preferences for such institutional arrangements.
