Before you start developing a shadow report however, it is important to know how it fits into the framework of domestic and international laws. These Nabz-Iran resource, The United Nations Treaty System, Iran’s Current Status on International Treaties, and Special Procedures: Thematic and Country Mandates, are quick references to the international treaty system. You can use these documents as a reference to determine how and where your shadow report fits in with the existing structures and how you build off of these structures in order to progress human rights in Iran.
