Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Chad/Central African Republic (May 2011)
When considering the report on the liquidation phase of the UN Mission in Chad and CAR (MINURCAT), the Council is again urged to review the barriers faced in gathering information on the ground, including specific information on the status of women. The Council should remain actively seized of the situation in Chad and CAR, and put in place a mechanism to effectively monitor the Chadian government’s implementation of its protection commitments. The Council is urged to support the creation of a fully-mandated field office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Chad. The office should be well-resourced in order to monitor human rights and rule of law activities effectively, and to ensure victims’ access to justice and that perpetrators do not enjoy impunity. The office must maintain a strong presence in the eastern part of the country.
