Slovenia presented voluntary pledges and commitments in support of its candidature for membership for the period 2016-2018 in February 2015. As well as reflecting on the fulfilment of Slovenia’s previous pledges and commitments, the document outlines a number of new commitments.
Key pledges include: Continue efforts to build an effective Council, including by cooperating with all member states; Continue to fulfil its obligations under the international human rights conventions, including by submitting periodic reports in a timely manner; Continue to pursue priority issues including women’s rights, children’s rights, minority rights, the rights of persons with disabilities, and the rights of older persons; Work towards including a human rights perspective in the post-2015 development agenda; Continue Slovenia’s leadership on human rights and the environment; Continue to implement, at a domestic level, the UN Guiding Principles on human rights and business; and implement its national action plan on Security Council resolutions 1325 and 1820 on women, peace and security
An analysis of steps taken by Slovenia in fulfillment of its international pledges show that it has submitted most of its periodic reports, but is yet to present its report under the CAT. Slovenia has supported initiatives on women’s rights, children’s rights, minority rights, the rights of persons with disabilities, and the rights of older persons.
