Easier Said Than Done (2010)
What is the Easier Said than Done series of reports ?
CHRI has been monitoring the behaviour of Commonwealth countries at the UN Human Rights Council since the Council’s inception in 2006. The Easier Said than Done reports, of which there are now three (covering the Council from its inception in 2006 to mid-2010), measure the compliance of Commonwealth members of the UN Human Rights Council with their domestic and international human rights obligations.
This edition of the report summarises and analyses the human rights performance of 12 Commonwealth members of the Council from mid-2008 till mid-2010 at the Council, in the wider UN human rights machinery and in the domestic sphere.
What is the main focal point of the reports?
The focus of the Easier Said than Done reports is the pre-election pledge made by each country before its election to the Council. These pledges include commitments to promote and protect human rights internationally, domestically and, specifically, at the Council. The reports analyse the extent to which Commonwealth members of the Council comply with their pre-election pledges.
