This submission to the Universal Periodic Review of Sudan – co-authored by Redress and the Sudanese Human Rights Monitor – highlights the need for legislative reforms in Sudan to address persisting discrepancies between the country’s domestic laws and its international human rights obligations, particularly under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights. The report includes an analysis of the Sudanese Bill of Rights, with a view to identifying critical aspects that should form part of the new constitution following the end of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement interim period in mid-2011.

This submission forms part of our Project on Criminal Law Reform in Sudan with the Sudanese Human Rights Monitor and Sudanese civil society.
