Chapter Summary

This chapter sets out practice of the UN treaty bodies in cases against the Netherlands. The Human Rights Committee, which supervises compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, has to date dealt with seventy seven complaints against the Netherlands. The government argued that in its interpretation the European Court of Justice had taken into account the funded nature of the ABP pension and other supplementary pension schemes in several Member States. The Committee against Torture has dealt with fifteen cases against the Netherlands. The Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has dealt with three complaints against the Netherlands and in two of those found that breaches of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination had occurred.
