A Survey of UN Reports (2006-2017)
In recent years, the issues of involuntary placement and involuntary treatment for mental health conditions have been addressed on a number of different occasions within the UN system. There is no unified UN position on the question of whether involuntary placement and treatment can be lawful under UN human rights standards; different positions have been taken in different reports. This Essex Autonomy Project report surveys recent UN statements on these matters.
