Information is as of November 2012.
Reports of states parties on bayefsky.com are limited to those available in electronic form, which generally excludes reports prior to 1992.
The following information from a state party is included in this section:
- When a state becomes a party to any of the nine treaties, or a party to the Optional Protocols to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, that state is obligated to submit reports to the treaty body at regular intervals. These reports are contained under this section on state reports.
- Special reports or reports specifically requested by a treaty body from a state party.
- Additional information which may have been specifically requested by a treaty body or may be a submission on the initiative of the state party itself.
Reports which have in fact been submitted by states parties recently may not have been issued publically by the UN, due to many factors including the need for translation, and the practice of some treaty bodies regarding time lines for publication of reports in advance of their consideration.
