U.S. Fifth Periodic Report to the U.N. Human Rights Committee on Compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (2019)

U.S. Fifth Periodic Report to the U.N. Human Rights Committee on Compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (2019)

In January 2018, the United States agreed to receive a List of Issues Prior to Reporting (LOIPR) from the U.N. Human Rights Committee regarding compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights , and as a result, the Committee adopted the LOIPR at its 125th session that was held March 4-29, 2019. The United States is now expected to begin drafting its Fifth Periodic Report, for which the Committee has set a deadline of April 2, 2020. This sign-on letter urges the U.S. to begin preparing this report in earnest, to conduct meaningful consultations with civil society groups and to submit it in a timely manner consistent with the Committee’s deadline.
