WG on disappearances, 2005
Sudan tabled voluntary pledges and commitments in support for its candidacy for membership for the period 2020-2022 on 10 October 2019.
At international level, Sudan pledged to cooperate with the UN and regional human rights mechanisms, including the UPR, and the OHCHR; strengthen its cooperation with the members of the Human Rights Council; submit its periodic reports to the Treaty Bodies, promote cultural and social rights, and work to put an end to the use of the unilateral coercive measures.
At national level, Sudan committed, inter alia, to: work constructively during the transitional period to create a suitable atmosphere in which to hold free and fair elections, support the empowerment of women in all political, economic and social aspects, cooperate with the OHCHR field presence, and implement the treaties it has ratified.
An analysis of steps taken by Sudan in fulfilment of its international level pledges shows that Sudan actively engages with the Special Procedures, accepting and completing almost 90% of all visit requests. However, it has responded only to 25% of all communications. Regarding the Treaty Bodies, Sudan has two overdue periodic reports, and for the reports it has presented, it tends to report late.
