Fuente: Office of the High Commisioner for Human Rights 
Vacantes durante el año 2015
Los “procedimientos especiales” del Consejo de Derechos Humanos (CDH) son expertos independientes en derechos humanos con mandatos para examinar y prestar asesoramiento en derechos humanos desde una perspectiva temática o de un país. Sus funciones específicas están definidas en las resoluciones del CDH que establecen o prorrogan su mandato.
Los mandatos bien pueden ejercidos por un “relator especial” o por un “experto independiente” o por un “grupo de trabajo” integrado por cinco miembros de cada uno de los grupos regionales de las Naciones Unidas (África, Asia y el Pacífico, Europa Oriental, América Latina y el Caribe, y Europa Occidental y otros Estados). En cuanto a los grupos de trabajo, solo los nacionales de los países que pertenecen a un grupo regional podrían postular a la vacante específica de ese grupo. Por ejemplo, para el Grupo de Trabajo sobre Desapariciones Forzadas o Involuntarias – miembro de los Estados de Asia y el Pacífico – solo podrán postular los nacionales de los Estados de Asia y el Pacífico. Ver la lista de los Estados miembros de la ONU por cada grupo regional.
El cargo de los titulares de mandatos de los procedimientos especiales conlleva una dedicación de tiempo considerable de, aproximadamente, tres meses al año, y consiste en el examen, seguimiento, asesoramiento e información al público en cualquiera de las situaciones específicas de cada país (mandatos por país) o sobre cuestiones temáticas en todo el mundo (mandatos temáticos). Las actividades de los titulares de mandato también incluyen: visitas a países, toma de medidas en casos individuales y preocupaciones de carácter más amplio y estructural, realización de estudios y participación en actividades de promoción y defensa de los derechos humanos. Todos los procedimientos especiales presentan anualmente un informe al CDH, la mayoría de los mandatos también presentan un informe a la Asamblea General. La Oficina del Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos presta apoyo a los titulares de mandatos de los procedimientos especiales.

Papers are invited from any discipline that considers whether international human rights law, movements, and discourses have, could or should engage with the problem of economic inequality nationally or internationally.
