Chapter Summary

This section presents model rules of procedure for United Nations Bodies while dealing with violations of Human Rights. These model rules are applicable upon the decision of the competent organ to ad hoc bodies of the United Nations entrusted with studies of particular situations where reliable evidence exists of a consistent pattern of gross violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms, including policies of racial discrimination and segregation, and of apartheid, in all countries, with particular reference to colonial and other dependent countries and territories. Only the organ which establishes the ad hoc body may, on its own initiative or on the proposal of the ad hoc body, make modifications to the present rules or add to them such further provisions as it deems necessary for the ad hoc body to perform its functions, taking into account in particular the provisions of rule 10.
