Cuba presented voluntary pledges and commitments on 14 February 2020. In the document, Cuba pledged, inter alia, to continue to contribute in a decisive manner to consolidating an approach based on cooperation and constructive dialogue in the work of the UN human rights mechanisms, to continue to promote its traditional initiatives on the right to food and the promotion of cultural rights, and to continue to work on the progressive development of third-generation rights, in particular of international solidarity.
An analysis of steps taken by Cuba in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that Cuba has indeed engaged in dialogue with the Council, participating individually in over 53% of all dialogues, debates, and panels, and joining a significant number of cross-regional group statements (108, above the average of 84 for all States). Cuba has indeed promoted the initiatives mentioned in its pledges.
