Alternative report to the State report of Honduras for review by CESCR

This report is submitted by civil society as the alternative report to the second report of the State of Honduras for review by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights during its 58th session in June 2016.

It was prepared within the framework of the UPR Platform, which comprises 54 social movement, development and human rights organisations in Honduras.2 The report was drafted based on information from civil society and international and regional organisations and agencies – including various mechanisms and agencies of the United Nations and the Inter-American Human Rights System - as well as on official information from the State of Honduras.

The drafting process included a review of the State report, as well as previous recommendations from the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) during the first cycle on Honduras in 2001, and from other United Nations treaty bodies.
