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 ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries 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

Report of the international fact-finding mission to investigate violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, resulting from the Israeli attacks on the flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian assistance by United Nations Human Rights Council ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report was prepared by the fact-finding mission established by the Human Rights Council on 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 report sets out background information relating to the interception of the flotilla as well as the applicable international law. 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, 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 report contains a legal analysis of facts as determined by the Mission with a view to determining whether violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, took place. The fact-finding mission concluded that a series of violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, were committed by the Israeli forces during the interception of the flotilla and during the detention of passengers in Israel prior to deportation
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 5 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

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present document ... is the outcome of a consultation process where Governments, experts and practitioners in various ways provided their input. In particular, written submissions received from Governments by a deadline of 1 May 2010 have been taken into account ...

The 35 areas of good practice included in the compilation are grouped into four "baskets", namely legal basis (practices 1-5), oversight and accountability (practices 6-10 and 14-18), substantive human rights compliance (practices 11-13 and 19-20) and issues related to specific functions of intelligence agencies (practices 21-35)."--Summary
