The Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR Centre) envisions a world where the civil and political rights are protected, respected and fulfilled for everyone without discrimination.
The Centre is an independent, non-governmental organisation seeking to realise its vision through universal ratification and implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). For this purpose, the Centre closely works with three key players needed for a real change, namely, 1) civil society, 2) national authority and 3) UN Treaty Bodies in particular the Human Rights Committee (HR Committee), the monitoring body of the ICCPR.
- Strategic Objective 1: Strengthen and assist the efforts of civil society for the protection of civil and political rights
- Strategic Objective 2: Increase ratification and enhance implementation of ICCPR
- Strategic Objective 3: Contribute to the strengthening of the HR Committee’s work and thematic focus
