10 Steps To Writing A Shadow Report

This how-to guide outlines the 10 steps advocates should follow in order to write a basic shadow report. It is intended for individuals and groups new to process or anyone looking for a refresher. While this guide was developed to support the writing of shadow reports for the review of the U.S. Government under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), these 10 steps apply to any of the other treaty reporting processes. 

The Advocates for Human Rights, with the support of the US Human Rights Network and members of the ICCPR Taskforce, developed this guide.
