SR on freedom of association and assembly, 2011
Djibouti tabled its voluntary pledges and commitments in support for its candidacy for membership (2009-2012) on 12 March 2009.
At domestic level, Djibouti committed to: ‘continue to place human rights at the heart of its national concerns.’
Internationally, it pledged to: ratify the CRPD and the CPED; strengthen its cooperation with UN human rights protection mechanisms, including the Treaty Bodies, by submitting various initial and periodic reports; and strengthen cooperation with the Council’s mechanisms (i.e. Special Procedures and UPR).
An analysis of steps taken by Djibouti in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that Djibouti did ratify the CRPD (in 2012) but not the CPED. In terms of cooperation with Special Procedures, Djibouti accepted 2 out of 3 visit requests and responded to all 4 communications received. Most of Djibouti’s periodic treaty reports are overdue.
