The Permanent Missions of Switzerland and Morocco, as Co-Facilitators of the UN Human Rights Treaty Body Review Process 2020, received about 80 submissions from States, NHRIs, TB experts and civil society. They are now published on the Co-facilitation process webpage.

Child Rights Connect, as a member of  TB-Net, engaged in this strengthening process in two ways:

  1. TB-Net together with ISHR submitted a Joint civil society submission that highlights the main points of the Civil Society Proposal “Towards a strengthened UN treaty body system” which was adopted and endorsed by 86 organisations. The submission with endorsements by civil society organisations will be made available.
  2. TB-Net signed a Joint NGO submission with 22 other organisations that regularly engage with the UN human rights treaty body system.

Next step
The Co-Facilitators will hold online consultations with States and dialogues with stakeholders, including civil society in July – the dates are not yet available.
