These mechanisms-thematic and e different structural advantages, and their concrete effectiveness depends on the specific circumstances of the particular case they are asked to address.

Flood assesses the role of the United Nations in implementing international human rights standards, with a special focus on Charter-based institutions. After setting the historical, theoretical, and legal contexts, Flood examines in depth the two main types of Charter-based institutions through case studies of the thematic mechanisms on disappearances and religious discrimination and the country-specific mechanisms used with Chile and Iran. 8 - Factors Influencing the Effectiveness of UN Human Rights Institutions 116.

We highlight three specific areas where critical scholarship is needed to understand the nature of this protection regime, discussing the contributions of authors in this special issue: the definition and use of the term ‘human rights defender’; the effectiveness of protection mechanisms; and the complex relationship between repression, activism and risk. This practice note examines the value of such human rights-based interventions by drawing on findings from the Women's Rights in Darfur Training of Trainers Programme.

All about The Effectiveness of UN Human Rights Institutions by Patrick James Flood. by Patrick James Flood.

It will explore critical perspectives on race and human rights from the joint perspectives of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL). This conference is jointly convened by UCLA's Critical Race Studies Program, Promise Institute for Human Rights, International and Comparative Law Program and Journal of International Law and Foreign Affairs, and aims to foster a transnational, interdisciplinary academic inquiry among human rights, TWAIL and CRT scholars on some of the most pressing issues of our time.

Since the 1970s, the international community of states has demonstrated increasing willingness to invest UN institutions with politico-ethical authority to act on its behalf in addressing human rights abuses. Through trial and error, some of these institutions have had a degree of success in securing better practical observance of international human rights standards. Flood examines the reasons why some structural approaches have had more impact than others. He argues that states must make policy choices in an environment where many political actors operate simultaneously and where several state interests are in play simultaneously. This situation creates the political space in which community structures can operate to influence behavior. Because states require the active or tacit cooperation of other states to promote their interests, they seek to avoid prolonged political isolation. Thus, the most effective UN human rights institutions are those linked in meaningful ways with Charter-based human rights mechanisms.

These mechanisms―thematic and country-specific―have different structural advantages, and their concrete effectiveness depends on the specific circumstances of the particular case they are asked to address. There is evidence that they have greater impact when employed simultaneously, as well as when key states support their efforts bilaterally. Through case studies, Flood analyzes the work of the thematic mechanisms on disappearances and religious discrimination and the country-specific mechanisms used with Chile and Iran. He concludes that Charter-based UN human rights institutions have become an enduring part of the international environment and that their activities have strengthened the concept and practice of state accountability to the international community for human rights conduct.
