Webinar Reminder: Intro to the Covenant on Civil & Political Rights (ICCPR): An Opportunity for Engagement

Update Type: 

The goal of this 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 discuss the attached template which the Task Force is advising to use for your submission to the U.N. Human Rights Committee. In addition, advanced law students in Northeastern Law School's US Human Rights Advocacy Seminar are available to work with organizations to conduct background research, draft language, and further develop submissions in consultation with organization staff.  If you are interested in this resource, please contact Prof. Martha Davis, m.davis@northeastern.edu  ASAP, but in any event prior to December 14 so that she can match students with projects."
