ICJ submission on El Salvador to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

The ICJ has submitted an alternative report in advance of the Committee’s examination of El Salvador’s combined third, fourth and fifth periodic reports under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).

The ICJ submission draw’s the Committee’s attention to concerns related to:

  • The rights of victims of alleged violations of economic, social and cultural rights;
  • Discrimination and denial of equal rights;
  • The right to work and to just and favourable conditions of work; and
  • The right to an adequate standard of living.

The Committee will examine El Salvador’s combined report during its 52nd session held in April to May 2014, following which it will adopt Concluding Observations setting out recommendations to the Government of El Salvador.
