Webinars on Human Rights Committee follow-up recommendations


ILGA World, supported by the CCPR Centre, will conduct two webinars on LGBTI follow-up recommendations by the United Nations Human Rights Committee. 

For whom these webinars can be useful?

The webinars will be useful for any LGBTI advocates interested in United Nations mechanisms.

Particularly important the webinars will be for activists from the countries that:

  • received follow-up recommendations from the Human Rights Committee previously (Belize, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Honduras, Lithuania, Mongolia and Sudan)
  • will be reviewed by the Committee this year (Bolivia, Botswana, Central African Republic, Chad, Dominica, Finland, Germany, Haiti, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Nicaragua, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Sri Lanka, Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Ukraine, Uruguay, Uzbekistan).

What you can learn from the webinars?

We will look at what are the Human Rights Committee and its follow-up recommendations.
We will explain what opportunities are available to LGBTI activists in the follow-up monitoring process.
We will address particular follow-up recommendations on LGBTI made by the Committee, and will provide concrete examples of activities organised by LGBTI defenders.
Finally, we will show you the recommended template for NGO shadow reports to the Committee, and will answer any questions from the participants.
