Extra-territorial Obligations

We successfully advocated to have ETOs systemically monitored and enforced in several General Comments and Recommendations by UN treaty bodies:  General Comment No. 24 of the CESCR dealing with business and human rights; and CEDAW: No. 34 on rural women, No. 35 on gender-based violence against women, and No. 37 on gender-related dimensions of disaster risk reduction in the context of climate change.
