Ecuador – Submission to Human Rights Committee 132nd Session June 2021

The following submission, made in advance of the 132nd session of the Human Rights Committee, covers our concern about sexual violence laws and procedures that deny justice to survivors in Ecuador. In this submission, we recommend questions to be asked to Ecuador by the Committee and we respectively offer suggestions on the legal and procedural changes necessary to ensure perpetrators of sexual violence are brought to justice, that survivors are able to access justice, and that gender discriminatory provisions in Ecuador’s laws are abolished.
