Event Type: 
Date: 
Thu Dec 6, 2018 - 1:00pm EST

The U.S. has agreed to receive from the U.N. Human Rights Committee a List of Issues Prior to Reporting which will form the basis for the U.S. Government’s periodic report to the Committee. U.S. Civil Society and Indigenous Peoples and their representatives can submit information on relevant ICCPR issues, draft suggested questions and recommendations that will be considered by the Committee for inclusion within the List of Issues Prior to Reporting. The deadline for submissions is January 14, 2019.

The goal of the webinar is to provide a brief overview of the ICCPR and the review process, opportunities for engagements and share resources for collaboration and participation in this important treaty compliance review process. The webinar will also discuss a template which the USHRN's ICCPR Task Force is advising to use for your submission to the U.N. Human Rights Committee.

Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/2zA9OcL if you would like to join us on December 6 at 1pmEST/10amPST for an introductory webinar on the ICCPR and how you can engage and contribute to the List of Issues Prior to Reporting, which will form the basis for the U.S. Government’s periodic report to the Committee.
