UN Treaty-Based Bodies

Nine UN Treaty-based Bodies, or committees, exist, each tasked with monitoring state adherence to a respective UN human rights convention. Examples include the Human Rights Committee (monitoring implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights); the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights); and the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination). BADIL presents written submissions to assist these bodies with periodic reviews and/or individual/group complaints where appropriate.
