UN Reviews Liberia, Others Human Rights Records


The UN Human Rights Committee, which monitors implementation by States of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), is meeting in Geneva from July 2 to 27. The Committee will review Bahrain, Algeria, the Gambia, Liberia, Lithuania, and Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

The public sessions take place in the Ground Floor conference room of Palais Wilson in Geneva, and will be webcast here.

All the countries listed above are among the 171 States that have ratified the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, and so are required to be reviewed regularly by the Committee of 18 international independent experts. The Committee will also hear from NGOs and national human rights institutions.

More information, including submitted reports by the States, may be found here.

At the end of its session, the Committee will publish its findings, known as concluding observations, here on Thursday, July 26, and present them at a press conference in Press Room 1 at 13:30 (TBC).
