The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)

About CCPR

The Centre for Civil and Political Rights (CCPR Centre) is an international human rights NGO with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

It has regional offices in Togo, Thailand, Costa Rica and Kazakhstan.

The CCPR Centre envisions the full and universal realisation of the rights proclaimed in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and its two Optional Protocols.

The CCPR Centre aims to fulfil that vision by facilitating the application of the ICCPR and promoting the implementation of Human Rights Committee recommendations, mainly through engaging with national NGOs and strengthening the Committee itself.

We believe that making the most of the reporting, review and followup cycle of the Human Rights Committee is one of the best ways to achieve our vision.
