REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON FREEDOM OF RELIGION OR BELIEF, HEINER BIELEFELDT : ADDENDUM
given the wide overlaps between religion and ethnicity, a change of one’s inherited religion
may also be perceived as a rupture from one’s own ethnic and family background, thus
possibly leading to social ostracism.
B. The self-understanding of the State in managing religious pluralism
7. (...) Such
punitive actions are actually carried out in practice, sometimes leading to substantial fines,
imposed under articles 374-1 and 375 of the Administrative Code and disproportionately
affecting non-traditional communities. The Special Rapporteur also heard credible stories
about police raids of the premises of some non-registered groups, leading to confiscation of
literature, computers, mobile phones and other property.
VISIT TO MONGOLIA :REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, ITS CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES, REEM ALSALEM
Minister is in charge of leading and monitoring the work of the National Committee on
Gender Equality. (...) Despite the increase in the number of shelters, their number remains relatively low,
pushing civil society to take a leading role in filling the gap by developing their own network
of services for victims. (...) The Ministry of Education is well
placed to take a more leading role in promoting campaigns and awareness-raising initiatives
in educational settings, from early schooling to universities.
LETTER DATED 10 JULY 2019 FROM THE PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF LIECHTENSTEIN TO THE UNITED NATIONS ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
However, there exists a relatively rich history of cases in which states
have successfully addressed self-determination claims without leading to
independence and secession, from which other states facing such challenges may
benefit. (...) This can be the case even if
other provisions, such as a transition period leading to a referendum, were contained
in the agreement with the aim of decreasing the likelihood of eventual secession.
(...) Another concern expressed
was that, once an internal community enjoyed a degree of self-governance, this would
create a slippery slope potentially leading to the creation of a ‘proto-state’, or that
other groups would also start to make demands.

LETTER DATED 20 MAY 2021 FROM THE PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF BELGIUM TO THE UNITED NATIONS ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
interaction between IHL and counterterrorism law is leading to a harmful conflation of
the two, a lack of understanding of the obligations of IHL, and a weakening of human
rights protections in fragile, conflict, and post-conflict settings. In counterterrorism
settings, commitments to and understanding of children’s rights fade away, leading to a
troubling “unchilding” phenomenon in which certain children are deemed “terrorists,”
and terms such as “associated with,” and “accompanied by,” serve to erase the rights
they are entitled to as children by the state. (...) In particular, CAAC experts and others overseeing protection files should work closely
with their counterparts leading on counterterrorism and the security sector to
disseminate information on the relevant child protection standards and legal obligations.
