Since its creation on September 29, 2011, the Independent Expert's mandate has been renewed twice. Public participation and decision-making processes in global governance spaces are among its latest reports.
The United Nations Humans Right Council approved on Tuesday a resolution presented by Cuba to extend the Independent Expert's mandate on promoting a Democratic and Equitable International Order, a decision primarily sought by developing countries.
The Independent Expert "identifies obstacles to the promotion and protection of a democratic and equitable international order, as well as submits proposals and make recommendations to the Human Rights Council regarding possible action that might be taken."
Furthermore, the Independent Expert also recommends best practices at local, national, regional, or international levels.
