Abstract

This chapter explores the contribution of mandate-holders of special procedures to the development of international human rights standards, using as a paradigm their diverse interpretation of the legal framework, which serves as the basis of their operations. It evaluates the extent to which the human rights norms developed by the special procedures are consonant with other international efforts to regulate the same matters.
