Joint ICCPR submission to the UN Human Rights Committee: 1-year update

31st August 2009

In August 2009, IPRT, FLAC and ICCL made a joint submission to the UN Human Rights Committee as a 1-year update on the Concluding Observations of the Committee following their visit in 2008.

This submission aims to update the UN Human Rights Committee on the three priority areas highlighted in its Concluding Observations on Ireland of 23 July 2008. The submission also highlights areas where the State has ignored the Committee’s recommendations and introduced measures in the last year which are regressive under the ICCPR.
