About the Centre
The Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR-Centre) works to promote the participation of NGOs in the work of the Human Rights Committee.
The Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR-Centre) is an independent, non-governmental organisation dedicated to contribute to the implementation of the ICCPR through support to the civil society and through connecting key actors engaged to implement the UN Human Rights Committee recommendations at the national level.
The Centre also aims at ensuring that the work of the Human Rights Committee is fully taken into account in the framework of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) established by the Human Rights Council.
The Centre targets national and regional NGOs, as well as thematic NGOs whose mandates relate to the ICCPR.
