Country Reports

In its resolution 2000/48, the Commission requested the Special Rapporteur to include in his work schedule a programme of visits with a view to improving the protection afforded to the human rights of migrants, thus implementing as broadly and fully as possible all aspects of his mandate.

Visits to countries constitute an opportunity for the Special Rapporteur, through a direct dialogue with the Government concerned and representatives of civil society, to understand better the situation prevailing in that country. Discussions conducted during such visits with the officials concerned, enable him to enhance his understanding of the State and the evolution of the national legislation from the perspective of international human rights norms, taking into account the social, political and historical context in each country.

Visits are undertaken only at the invitation of a Government. However, the Special Rapporteur may solicit an invitation, based on factors such as the number, credibility and gravity of the allegations received, and the potential impact that the mission may have on the overall human rights situation.
