41st session of the UPR Working Group - Review of India

Recommendations by Sweden delivered by Mr Fredrik Nivaeus, Minister Counselor, Deputy Permanent Representative


Sweden acknowledges India’s commitment to human rights. India has ratified several important international conventions on human rights. However, concerns remain with regard to the rights to freedom of expression, assembly, and association, including on the internet; women’s safety and enjoyment of human rights; the pending ratification of the CAT (Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment) and labour rights.  

Sweden would like to make the following recommendations:

  1. Ratify the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
  2. Ratify ILO Convention 189 on Domestic Workers.


Thank you
