Abstract

This article proposes a "Three-Pillar Strategy" (TPS) as an overall human rights protection strategy for OHCHR field presences. The main idea is to integrate recommendations of UN treaty bodies (Pillar One), special procedures (Pillar Two), and the Universal Periodic Review process (Pillar Three) into UN Country Teams' (UNCTs) work and planning, and likewise to integrate UNCTs into the implementation process of the TPS. Within the One UN Concept, the TPS could be used as an entry point to support building and strengthening national human rights protection systems, including the administration of justice, legislative reform, national human rights institutions, and civil society.
