Received Sub-Committee visit
Nicaragua tabled its commitments and voluntary pledges in support of its candidacy for membership for the period 2011-2014 on 18 April 2011.
Rather than offering concrete pledges and commitments at national and international level, the document contains a detailed account of Nicaragua’s established national policies, institutions and practices designed to advance and protect human rights. Nicaragua concludes by pledging to ‘continue working to build a more just and harmonious world and to advocate for the promotion and defence of human rights and freedoms.’ It reiterates its ‘commitment to continue working to strengthen the Council.’
