Parallel CESCR Report (2020)

On Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 February 2020, representatives of Belgium participate in an interactive dialogue in Geneva with members of the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Unia, in its capacity as a National Human Rights Institution (B status), has submitted a parallel report. Myria also contributed to this report. In this report, different rights such as housing, employment, education, health or non-discrimination are examined through the competences of Myria and Unia.

On the basis of Belgium's report and the parallel and alternative reports, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights makes recommendations to Belgium. The purpose of these recommendations is to help Belgium to improve its compliance with the rights and freedoms provided for in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Unia's parallel report is available in French and English. You can download them on this page.
