Multilaterals factsheet final 500The Special Rapporteur’s factsheet summarizing the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association in the context of multilateral organization, presented in an easy-to use “yes/no” format, with hyperlinks to source materials.

This factsheet draws heavily from the Special Rapporteur’s 2014 report to the UN General Assembly and features guidance on:

  • • Multilateral organizations’ obligations to uphold assembly and association rights – and what that means in practice
  • • Multilaterals’ responsibilities when member states police assemblies targeted at the multilateral institution itself
  • • The status of private multilaterals, such as the International Olympic Committee
  • • Comparative access for business and civil society
  • • And more

The factsheet also summarizes the report’s recommendations and highlights key statistics in a “by the numbers” feature.
