Chapter Summary

Advocacy for protection is one of the great roles of the special procedures mandate-holders of the Human Rights Council. This chapter presents several examples of advocacy for protection. The normative recommendations of special procedures mandate holders contain numerous suggestions for the development of legal standards nationally, regionally, and internationally. A good example of this is the Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing. In some countries however, especially those which were relatively developed and might not have the severe problem of either income poverty or human development poverty, the group suffering from social exclusion might dominate the set of extremely poor people, supplemented by conditions of income and human development poverty to the extent that they existed. The international community and all member States should thus take up the obligations for removing extreme poverty as a core element of their human rights obligations.
