Catalysts for Change examines the strengths and weaknesses of one of the United Nations' most important human rights mechanismsa€”the collection of independent experts known as special proceduresa€”as they negotiate the rocky terrain where rights meet reality. These independent experts serve as the eyes and ears of the UN human rights system.

This book provides concrete evidence of why the system works and ways it can be improved.48. Government official, interview with author, April 13, 2010. 49.
