About the Centre
The Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR-Centre) envisions the full implementation of and respect for all human rights worldwide, as proclaimed in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which has now been ratified by 173 States. To this end, the CCPR-Centre was established in 2008 with the mission to support NGO engagement with the UN Human Rights Committee (HR Committee), the body that monitors and promotes the implementation of the ICCPR. The CCPR-Centre aims to fulfil this vision by facilitating the application of the ICCPR and promoting the implementation of HR Committee recommendations, mainly through engaging with national NGOs, governments and Parliamentarians, as well as with other key stakeholders such as, inter alia, National Human Rights Institutions, inter-ministerial coordinating mechanisms, judicial institutions and bar associations.
