This text hopes to satisfy a pressing need for current information on the working methods of the six principal UN human rights treaty bodies:

  • the human rights committee
  • the committee on economic, social and cultural rights
  • the committee on the elimination of racial discrimination
  • the committee on the elimination of discrimination against women
  • the committee against torture
  • the committee on the rights of the child.
Features include:-
  • explanations of reporting procedures and the role of NGOs
  • tables detailing states party reporting obligations
  • presentation of the individual petition procedures
  • the substantive provisions of the treaties, with notes on the applicable general comments/recommendations.
This second edition is revised to take account of important developments in both law and practice. It explains procedures such as the individual petition and investigative procedures of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women. It also describes the many changes and improvements in the range of procedures for NGO involvement in the work of the treaty bodies.
