Mali tabled voluntary pledges and commitments in support of its candidacy for membership of the Council for the period 2006-2009 on 24 April 2006.
Mali committed to: promote dialogue within the Council to make it more efficient in the execution of its mandate; cooperate with the Council’s mechanisms; present its period reports to Treaty Bodies on time; support the active participation of NGOs and civil society representatives in the work of the Council; encourage other States to ratify the core human rights conventions and respect their obligations; reinforce democracy, good governance and human rights through bilateral and multilateral cooperation, in particular through the UN; promote the development of human rights legislation; and promote human rights education.

Regarding cooperation with Special Procedures, Mali facilitated around half of visit requests. Mali is Party to all the core conventions, although its periodic reports tend to be overdue or submitted late.
