FORUM CONTRIBUTION: Not only the business of the state, but also a business of all: State reporting in South African and popular participation, pg 514

Volume: Volume 15 - 2011

Article type: Forum contribution

Author/s: Kollapen, Jody

The author argues that, when one turns to the subject of South Africa's state reporting in relation to international human rights law, three issues consistently come to light: delays in the submission of reports; problems with their content; and lack of consultation in their development.

To address these issues the author supports the establishment of a governmental-civil society forum to 'provide the basis both for constructive dialogue and greater coordination in how civil society engages with the international and regional human rights system'.
