Updated calendar of reviews under treaty bodies, UPR & HLPF

Dear all,

Please find attached an updated calendar with the upcoming reviews of states under treaty bodies, UPR and the HLPF.

For further information on each session, please click on the hyperlinked session number.

Please be aware that these schedules are subject to frequent change, and for the latest information, it is advised to consult the particular treaty body website.

As you will see, there is a wide range of countries concerned coming up for review before different treaty bodies in the next two years- both those which have been through the CRPD Committee process, or those coming up- and thus present as good opportunities to create synergies, reinforce recommendations and promote substantive coherence across the system.

For those which have already gathered information and submitted to the CRPD Committee (or those which are in the process of preparing for an upcoming CRPD Committee review), it is a strategic occasion to maximise the use and reach of that information by multiplying inputs across human rights mechanisms with minimal effort, simply by tailoring submissions to the particular mandate of the treaty body concerned.

We would be very grateful if you could indicate any plans or interest by DPOs/NGOs wishing to submit on issues related to the rights of persons with disabilities for these upcoming sessions.

Should you have any questions or require guidance on how to participate in this process through making written submissions and possible attendance, please do not hesitate to contact my colleague Juan Ignacio- in copy here.
