International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

Submission to the UN Human Rights Committee

In June 2009 the Commission prepared a written submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee in relation to the UK Government's performance under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It highlights a number of areas of concern and makes specific recommendations to the government in terms of improving human rights protection.

The Commission attended the oral examination of the UK government which took place on 7 and 8 July 2008. This was an important opportunity to raise its primary concerns directly at the United Nations.
