Obligations stemming from United Nations treaty and Charter based bodies resulted in an active year for New Zealand in 2014. New Zealand engaged, for the first time, with the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and also submitted its sixth periodic report¹ under the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (UNCAT).² New Zealand underwent its second Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and continued its active engagement within the UN Human Rights Council. This note reviews these and other aspects of New Zealand’s state practice in the area of human rights in 2014.
