The ICJ has provided a submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) for its consideration during the adoption of a list of issues for the examination of the initial report of Indonesia under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
During its meeting on 2-6 December 2013, the CESCR’s Pre-Sessional Working Group will adopt a list of issues on Indonesia. These issues will be put to the Government of Indonesia for formal response ahead of the CESCR’s full examination of the initial report of Indonesia in April/May 2014.
The ICJ’s submission raises matters and suggests concrete questions to be put to the Government of Indonesia concerning the right to freely choose work, and to just and favourable working conditions; the right to freedom of association and trade unions; the right to water; and the right to cultural life.
