UN Concluding Observations

UN Committee Concluding Observations, including selected Concluding Observations on water access, women's rights, and other discriminatory policies towards the Arab Palestinian minority in Israel.

Ministry of Justice Translated UN Concluding Observations into Hebrew

In June 2012 that the Israeli Ministry of Justice announced that they translated several “Concluding Observations” issued by United Nations human rights treaty bodies into Hebrew, and has made these documents available on the Ministry’s website. The United Nations also translates some concluding observations into Arabic, one of the UN’s official languages, which are also now hosted on the Justice Ministry’s website. 

Adalah and other human rights organizations in Israel have been advocating for this step for more than ten years in their various reports submitted to these human rights treaty bodies. This year, in advance of International Women’s Day in March 2012, Adalah sent a letter to the Attorney General requesting that he issue directives to the Israeli government to translate the concluding observations of the UN human rights treaty bodies regarding the rights of women into Hebrew and Arabic, and that he ensure that the relevant ministries adopt and implement them.
