Received Sub-Committee visit
Slovenia presented voluntary pledges and commitments in support of its candidature for membership of the Council for the period of 2007-2010 on 23 January 2007.
Internationally, Slovenia pledged to: support the mainstreaming of human rights; cooperate fully with the procedures and mechanism of the Council; contribute to and cooperate with the UPR; sign and ratify the third additional protocol to the Geneva Conventions; sign and ratify the CRPD and its Optional Protocol; and sign and ratify the CPED.
An analysis of steps taken by Slovenia in fulfillment of its international pledges show that it did indeed sign and ratify the third additional protocol to the Geneva Conventions, and the CRPD and its Optional Protocol (2008). Although Slovenia did sign the CPED in 2007, it has yet to ratify it. Regarding cooperation with Special Procedures, Slovenia has maintained a Standing Invitation, and has completed all visit requests. Regarding cooperation with UPR, Slovenia has submitted a mid-term report on implementation and has (impressively) participated in the reviews of 171 other states.
