NZ Human Rights Commission on the Christchurch Earthquakes

The NZ Human Rights Commission (HRC) produced a submission in March this year as part of it’s implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)

From the HRC web site:

This submission focuses on the Christchurch recovery, and three key enduring challenges for New Zealand identified in New Zealand’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR), other treaty body recommendations, and highlighted in the Commission’s 2010 review of human rights in New Zealand:

  • violence
  • inequality
  • the full and effective incorporation of international human rights obligations.

A copy of the report can be downloaded from here.
