Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author highlights that High Commissioners should take a special interest and place their shoulders to the wheel when it comes to treaties with pronounced preventive thrusts cooperating with partners to advance prevention. It has argued for stronger emphasis on preventive strategies by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and by High Commissioners and have already made the point that High Commissioners should develop cooperation with regional preventive and human rights mechanisms to help prevent gross violations of human rights world-wide. The chapter has already advocated the establishment within OHCHR of a Centre for Human Rights Policy and Research that could offer analyses on emerging global issues from a human rights perspective. It notes that United Nations (UN) human rights work can be grouped under the categories of seed-planting, fire-brigade, or preventive.
