Advisories And Reporting On State Compliance

For example the National Commission uses the UN treaty reporting procedures such as the UPR process and various Committees to report on the human rights Status in the Country. It is through these reporting that the recommendations are made to the State to improve on human rights compliance and observance in eth country.
