Scope and content

The title of S-1886 was drawn from the function series Human Rights (PKH.HRT) from the “Peacekeeping Headquarters Retention Schedule,” v. 2, August 2011, Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Department of Field Support (DFS).

S-1886 contains records documenting the administration and coordination of human rights activities in peacekeeping missions.

The records include daily reports of the Human Rights Division of the United Nations Operations in Burundi (ONUB), which cover: the activities of Human Rights Officers (HROs); the administration of justice and developments of major trials observed by Division officials; major incidents of alleged abuse by the police and by the Forces de défense nationale (FDN), killings and arbitrary executions, sexual violence, local crime; prison visits; and human rights protection capacity-building activities. Also included are two reports prepared by the ONUB Human Rights Division about the human rights situation in Burundi, which cover the period from June 2004 to May 2005.

Other records include: memoranda and letters about the coordination of the High Commissioner for Human Rights with the United Nations Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina (UNMIBH); and a speech delivered by Mary Robinson, High Commissioner for Human Rights, at the International Symposium on Strengthening Human Rights Field Operations, held in Bonn on 26-27 May 1998. There are also records documenting the activities of the Committee on Mission Persons (CMP), of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) from 1992 to 1999. The CMP records primarily concern the effectiveness and administration of the Committee, and an audit of the Committee completed in April 1996.
