The UN Human Rights Committee is due to publish its findings on South Africa, Namibia, Sweden, New Zealand, Slovenia, Costa Rica and Rwanda on 30 March. These States have all ratified the International Covenant on Civil Political Rights (ICCPR), and so are required to be reviewed regularly by the 18-member Committee.

The findings, officially termed concluding observations, contain positive aspects of how the respective State is implementing the ICCPR, and main areas of concern and recommendations for action.
