Civil Society Position Paper on the 2020 Review of UN General Assembly Resolution 68/268 on ‘Strengthening and enhancing the effective functioning of the human rights treaty body system’

, Index number: IOR 40/1217/2019

This position paper has been prepared by NGOs that regularly engage with the UN human rights treaty body system. We greatly value the treaty body system and consider it essential that Member States ensure that this key component of the UN’s human rights architecture is effective at ensuring human rights protections worldwide. As this paper explains, we believe that all stakeholders should reaffirm their support for Resolution 68/268 and ensure that it is fully implemented in the years ahead.
