Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Protection Roles of UN Human Rights Special Procedures on the survival of people and languages contains the table of contents and foreword. UN human rights special procedures mobilize the global community to protect the rights of actual and potential victims. The information and analysis from their reports and related recommendations help to empower groups and individuals in protecting their rights. Urgent actions are an essential part of the work of special procedures. Special procedures help to activate the world community as an early warning mechanism and form an intrinsic part of the efforts of the UN and the international community to give effect to the responsibility to protect human rights and to maintain a global watch over human security.
