The HHC's shadow reports and its suggestions for questions to be included in the List of Issues for the UN Human Rights Committee

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) is a multilateral treaty adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 16, 1966, and in force from March 23, 1976. It commits its parties to respect the civil and political rights of individuals, including the right to life, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, electoral rights and rights to due process and a fair trial.

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights is monitored by the Human Rights Committee  with permanent standing, to consider periodic reports submitted by member States on their compliance with the treaty.

Below, you may find the concluding observations issued by the Human Rights Committee with regard to Hungary and the related documents prepared by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and submitted to the Human Rights Committee.

Sixth reporting cycle (2015/2018):

– In February 2018, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee submitted its shadow report regarding the sixth periodic report of Hungary for consideration by the Human Rights Committee.

Fifth reporting cycle (2010):

– In September 2010, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee submitted its suggestions for questions to be included in the List of Issues for consideration of the fifth periodic report of Hungary.

– The periodic report of Hungary was considered by the Human Rights Committee on 11-29 October 2010, in Geneva. The Hungarian Helsinki Committee also prepared a shadow report for this session of the UN Human Rights Committee on the human rights situation in Hungary.The Shadow Report of the HHC is based on and in part repeats information included in the suggestions for questions to be included in the List of Issues, submitted by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. The Shadow Report primarily deals with the issues included therein. In some cases however it also draws attention to problems not explicitly formulated in the List of Issues but regarded by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee as being of particular importance, and also to issues that emerged under the new Government of Hungary (formed in May 2010) after the formulation of the List of Issues.

– The concluding observations of the Human Rights Committee are available here.

Fourth reporting cycle (2002):

– In 2002, four NGOs (the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, the Human Rights Documentation and Information Center and the Legal Defence Bureau for National and Ethnic Minorities) submitted their written comments regarding the fourth periodic report of Hungary.

– The concluding observations of the Human Rights Committee are available here.
