An important event took place last month in Geneva, Switzerland, but few in the United States, apart from human rights advocates, knew anything about it.
The U.S. ratified the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights about 20 years ago. In effect, this treaty is an international Bill of Rights. In ratifying the treaty, the U.S. agreed to abide by its provisions and to report at regular intervals to the UN Human Rights Committee, composed of experts in human rights law, to give an accounting of our progress in meeting the standards of the treaty.
