States that have ratified the ICESCR and the ICCPR have to submit periodic reports to the relevant UN Committee. ICO works with the State in ensuring previous recommendations are addressed.
This diagram shows the reporting cycle for the UN and where ICO is involved:
We accomplish this through the following strategies:
- Encouraging State Parties of ICCPR and ICESCR to take steps to implement their responsibilities. E.g help plan its feasibility and practicability
- Adult and youth education through participative and empowering training methodologies on human rights and development
- Consultancy services with state and civil society representative
