Report of the Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences, Yakin Ertürk : addendum : mission to the Netherlands by Yakin Ertürk( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The report addresses the dominant culture-based paradigms that justify or explain the violations of women's rights, reducing violence against women to a cultural problem. It traces the trends in the development of the international normative framework on violence against women in relation to culture that culminated in the recognition of the primacy of women's right to live a life free of gender-based violence over any cultural considerations. Then, it critically examines how cultural discourses are created, reproduced and instrumentalized to challenge this primacy and the validity of the principle of gender equality and women's human rights in general. It is argued that cultural explanations overlook the material basis of cultural formations, thus disguising the political and economic foundation of sociocultural dynamics."--Summary

"This report was prepared by the fact-finding mission established by the Human Rights Council in resolution 14/1 of 2 June 2010 to investigate violations of international law, including international humanitarian law and human rights law, resulting from the interception by Israeli forces of the humanitarian aid flotilla bound for Gaza on 31 May 2010 during which nine people were killed and many others injured. The fact-finding mission conducted interviews with more than 100 witnesses in Geneva, London, Istanbul and Amman. On the basis of this testimony and other information received, the Mission was able to reconstruct a picture of the circumstances surrounding the interception on 31 May 2010 and its aftermath. The report presents a factual description of the events leading up to the ... interception of each of the six ships in the flotilla as well as a seventh ship subsequently intercepted on 6 June 2010, the deaths of nine passengers and wounding of many others and the detention of passengers in Israel and their deportation ... The fact-finding mission concluded that a series of violations of international law ... were committed by the Israeli forces during the interception of the flotilla and during the detention of passengers in Israel prior to deportation."--Summary
Report of the Special Rapporteur on adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living, and on the right to non-discrimination in this context, Raquel Rolnik : addendum : mission to the United States of America by Raquel Rolnik( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first part of the report provides a brief overview of the evolution of housing policies, focusing on public subsidized housing programmes. It refers to the context of the current affordable housing crisis--with a growing proportion of people living in the United States facing serious challenges in accessing affordable housing. The second part of the report discusses the realization of the right to adequate housing, particularly affordability, discrimination and participation. The report highlights the implications of significant cuts in federal funding for low-income housing, the persistent impact of discrimination in housing, substandard conditions such as overcrowding and health risks, as well as the consequences of the foreclosure crisis. It also focuses on participation and underlines the importance of adequately informing the public of housing opportunities and involving them in the planning, decision-making, and implementation of programmes and policies that directly affect their lives."--Summary
Human rights in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories : report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict by United Nations Human Rights Council( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On 3 April 2009, the President of the Human Rights Council established the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict with the mandate "to investigate all violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law that might have been committed at any time in the context of the military operations that were conducted in Gaza during the period from 27 December 2008 and 18 January 2009, whether before, during or after." The Mission interpreted the mandate as requiring it to place the civilian population of the region at the center of its concerns regarding the violations of international law, and determined that it was required to consider any actions by all parties that might have constituted violations of international human rights law or international humanitarian law, and to review related actions in the entire Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel
Discriminatory laws and practices and acts of violence against individuals based on their sexual orientation and gender identity( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Report of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The situation of human rights in the Syrian Arab Republic has deteriorated significantly since 15 February 2012. Armed violence increased in intensity and spread to areas. Active hostilities raged between Government forces (and the Shabbiha) and anti-Government armed groups. Sporadic clashes between the armed actors evolved into continuous combat, involving more brutal tactics and new military capabilities on both sides. The level of armed violence varied throughout the country. During the reporting period, the commission of inquiry determined that the intensity and duration of the conflict, combined with the increased organizational capabilities of anti- Government armed groups, had met the legal threshold for a non-international armed conflict. The commission found reasonable grounds to believe that Government forces and the Shabbiha had committed the crimes against humanity of murder and of torture, war crimes and gross violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, including unlawful killing, torture, arbitrary arrest and detention, sexual violence, indiscriminate attack, pillaging and destruction of property. The commission found reasonable grounds to believe that war crimes, including murder, extrajudicial execution and torture, had been perpetrated by organized anti-Government armed groups. The commission is unaware of efforts meeting international standards made by either the Government or anti-Government armed groups to prevent or punish the crimes documented in the present report
