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.
In this approach, the Centre has developed a 5-year Strategic Plan 2019-2023 (available in English and French) setting out three strategic objectives as follows:
Each year the CCPR-Centre runs projects with national NGOs in between four and seven key countries to support the NGOs engagement with the Human Rights Committee. All these projects follow the same format, but this can be adjusted to respond to the specific needs of national NGOs.
