The UN human rights treaty bodies are independent, expert bodies mandated to monitor, report on and assist with the domestic implementation of international human rights treaties.

Over the last two decades there have been a number of processes directed at increasing the accessibility, effectiveness and efficiency of the treaty bodies. These efforts have become more focused in recent years as a consequence of the pressures placed on the system by an increase in the number and workload of treaty bodies which has not been accompanied by a commensurate increase in their resourcing.

ISHR is committed to ensuring that the treaty bodies are accessible to human rights defenders and effective in contributing to the implementation of human rights on the ground. As part of this commitment, we are actively involved in current processes to strengthen the treaty bodies.
