Join the US Human Rights Network for a discussion on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR} and how Civil society and Indigenous Peoples can engage and contribute to the List of Issues Prior to Reporting, which will form the basis for the U.S. Government s periodic report to the Human Right Committee.  The presentation will last 40 minutes followed by a 20 minute Q & A.

Background: The U.S. has agreed to receive from the UN Human Rights Committee a List of Issues Prior to Reporting, which will form the basis for the U.S. Government’s periodic report to the Committee. The Human Rights Committee was established to monitor the implementation of the ICCPR. U.S. Civil Society organizations and Indigenous Peoples can submit issues in the form of questions or recommendations that can be considered for inclusion within the List of Issues Prior to Reporting. The deadline for submissions is January 14, 2019.
