Report of the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions

June 2011

[English] [français]

Summary - A/HRC/17/28

The present report provides an overview of the activities of the mandate over the past year. It also discusses the legal norms applicable to the use of lethal force during demonstrations. Based on a study covering a sample of 76 countries, the Special Rapporteur concludes that many domestic legal systems do not adhere to international standards in respect of the right to freedom of assembly, and the use of force during demonstrations. The Special Rapporteur proposes some entry points and strategies to ensure greater compliance with international standards.
