Chapter Summary

Human rights field offices are on the cutting edge of human rights protection. They are a significant new addition to the armoury of international protection. Protection, however, is a difficult and challenging business. This chapter addresses the questions: how the protection is done in practice; and what are the good practices that can be identified in the operations of the field offices to date. The report on the OHCHR field office in Cambodia provides information on general objectives, the protection of human rights through monitoring, investigation and reporting. The report on Sierra Leone covers the human rights situation in Sierra Leone and the Human Rights Activities of the United Nations in Sierra Leone. In the nature of things, human rights field offices are usually established in the aftermath of conflict or of gross violations of human rights and are therefore mostly involved in containment or remedial mode.
