CERD Early Warning Appeal – The Situation in West Papua – July 2016
We appealed to the CERD to urgently consider, under its Early Warning measure, the rapidly deteriorating situation in Papua (Indonesia).
GHR is a training organisation which trains human rights defenders from all the regions in both Geneva and the field. It has also conducted training courses within Papua on how to document human rights abuses and how to make use of UN human rights mechanisms and procedures.
Our trainees prepare reports on cases of violations, following which we advise them and their organisations on the best way to submit their communications to UN bodies.
Indonesia was requested to answer the CERD by the 14th of November 2016.
