The present report is the Independent Expert’s third to the General Assembly and is submitted pursuant to paragraph 19 of Assembly resolution 68/175. It supplements previous reports to the Assembly and the Human Rights Council on other aspects of the mandate and focuses on the implementation of the right of self- determination as key to the international order envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations and a constitutive element of Council resolution 18/6. Bearing in mind that over the past decades many conflicts were related to the denial of self- determination, the report explores the vision that the universal realization of self- determination will contribute to greater enjoyment of human rights, peace and stability as envisaged in Article 1 (2) of the Charter. The Independent Expert acknowledges the need to balance competing rights and interests in the spirit of the Charter and proposes criteria to facilitate an understanding of the various manifestations of self-determination.
