, Index number: IOR 65/001/2008

The revised Arab Charter on Human Rights entered into force on 15 March 2008 after it received seven ratifications. An “Arab Human Rights Committee”, tasked with considering periodic reports from states parties, and making recommendations on the implementation of the provisions of the revised Charter by states parties will be created pursuant to the Charter. Amnesty International believes that electing competent and independent individuals to a supervisory committee is vital to ensuring proper monitoring of a state’s treaty obligations.
