New Zealand has signed a number of important human rights treaties and conventions, which set out the human rights standards our government has agreed to comply with. The United Nations regularly reviews how we are going and makes recommendations about areas where we are doing well and where improvements can be made. 

It’s important that all of our communities are involved in this process and there are opportunities for you or organisations that you are involved with, to have input into the review processes and to highlight issues that are important for you.
