On 20 October 2016 in New York, United Nations’ first-ever Special Rapporteur Maina Khai had his final presentation to the General Assembly, reflecting on his time in mandate. The special rapporteur on the rights of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association warned that the environment for exercising civic freedoms remains hazardous worldwide. Kiai noted that his mandate was created at a time that covered a period during which the world faced a series of severe crises. Despite many challenges, the Special Rapporteur emphasized that he was optimistic about the prospects for the global renewal of civic freedoms. The Special Rapporteur also presented his final report to the General Assembly – a study of the exercise of assembly and association rights in the workplace, with a focus on the world’s most marginalized workers.
