The introduction sets up the scene for the analysis that follows explaining the main topics addressed in the book. It succinctly explains how it seeks to challenge the conventional wisdom underpinning the presumption that politicization is a weakness of the international human rights system, through the lenses of the Special Procedures. It also addresses recent criticisms aimed at the international human rights machinery. The introduction also provides the reader with a map of the overall structure of the book and the main topics addressed.
