Simple Guide to the UN Treaty Bodies

ISHR's Simple Guide to the UN Treaty Bodies has been updated. The 2022 edition is now available in English and Turkish. Updates to other language versions will follow.

ISHR's Simple Guide to the UN Treaty Bodies (updated in 2022) provides an overview of the UN human rights treaty body system and the different ways human rights defenders can make use of it to further their human rights causes. The guide also provides information on the relationship between the treaty bodies and other UN human rights mechanisms, relevant developments related to the harmonisation of the working methods of the treaty bodies, and a glossary and e-resources for further reference.
