Call for candidates for the mandate of UN Special Rapporteur on counter-terrorism

The International Commission of Jurists, along with Amnesty International, the Association for the Prevention of Torture, Human Rights Watch and World Organisation Against Torture, calls on Governments, NGOs and others, including relevant professional networks, to use this checklist to identify eligible candidates for consideration for the upcoming vacancy for the Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism.

NGOs and others wishing to nominate candidates should, after checking with the person(s) concerned, send the names of eligible candidates to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) by Monday 14 March 2011 for inclusion in the list used as a basis for the appointment.
