Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Studies in Religion, Secular Beliefs and Human Rights contains acknowledgements. The Optional Protocol allows individuals to submit claims of violations of the Covenant to the UN Human Rights Committee on condition, among other things, that all domestic judicial avenues have been exhausted. The Human Rights Committee, which considered the Waldman case, is composed of 18 independent experts, elected by the states parties to the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Canada is one of the more than 150 states parties to the Covenant. Annually, the Committee has three sessions each of three weeks duration. The Committee has the responsibility of monitoring compliance of states parties with the Covenant. Its monitoring functions are performed using three main techniques.
