ICJ response to the questionnaire on best practices that promote and protect the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association

The ICJ responded to a questionnaire prepared by the Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association.

The questionnaire was issued to States, national human rights institutions, non-governmental organizations and regional human rights mechanisms with a view to annexing responses to the Special Rapporteur’s report to the Human Rights Council for consideration at its 20th regular session in June 2012.

The ICJ’s response does not address all questions in the questionnaire, nor does it purport to address questions affecting all countries, but instead focusses on three areas:

  1. addressing global issues relevant to practices affecting the rights of peaceful assembly and association by LGBT individuals and organisations;
  2. examining issues relevant to Myanmar’s new law on peaceful protest; and
  3. answering questions relevant to the law and practice in South Africa.
