I am attaching my final report, presented in Geneva last week (there were about six hours of discussions in the Human Rights Council). This is a (probably foolish) attempt to summarize six years of travels, consultations, and studies. Do not hesitate to circulate widely!
Much has been achieved over the past six years. The ideas defended here were largely seen as seditious when I took over. They are now, almost, mainstream. Of course, the hard work remains to be done: to move from rhetorics to action.
