Status of ratification by countries of International Human Rights Treaties (Status of )

Data source

United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights - Human Rights Indicators Interactive Dashboard https://indicators.ohchr.org/

Additional information

This indicator provides information on the ratification status of the International Treaty, not the alignment of the national law with the treaty (this is looked at outcome level). National law should guarantee the enjoyment of the rights enumerated in International Treaties / Conventions. The method selected will vary according to the constitutional and legal systems of individual countries. In some countries, once it is ratified at the international level, the treaty may automatically form part of national law (impact level result). In some other countries, the legislature might have to adopt an act of ratification at the national level (outcome level result). In other cases, including many common-law countries, only those provisions of the treaty that are directly incorporated into national law will give rise to enforceable rights and duties.

SDG 8.7.1 - Proportion and number of children aged 5-17 years engaged in child labour, disaggregated by sex and age (Percentage)

Data source

Global SDG Indicators Database, https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/indicators/database or baseline and endline studies to be conducted and budgeted by the EU-funded intervention

Additional information

 

SDG indicator 8.7.1 - as of October 2021, this is a Tier II indicator, meaning that methodology and/or data availability have limitations. Please check data availability for your country of interest before using this indicator in a logframe. If data is not available, the EU-funded intervention would need to conduct baseline and endline studies for this indicator. The number of children engaged in child labour corresponds to the number of children reported to be in child labour during the reference period (usually the week prior to the survey). The proportion of children in child labour is calculated as the number of children in child labour divided by the total number of children in the population. For the purposes of this indicator, children include all persons aged 5 to 17. For more detail, please see: https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/metadata/files/Metadata-08-07-01.pdf

Additional information

This indicator provides information on laws and policies which directly or indirectly protect and promote human rights the alignment of the adopted national laws or national policies with the International Human Rights. National laws should guarantee the enjoyment of the rights enumerated in International Treaties / Conventions. In various countries the legal framework per se does not contain information about the relevant national policy. In case the adopted national polices are part of the adopted law, attention should be given in order to avoid double-counting. In such cases, hence, the law / policy should be counted only once as a result.

Extent to which domestic laws, national action plans or development plans enshrining: i) freedom of expression; ii) freedom of speech; iii) freedom of assembly; iv) right not to be tortured v) right to access public sector information or government data; vi) measures against child labour/ child labour/ Female Genital Mutilation/ gender-based violence (Extent to which)

Additional information

SDG 5.1.1 - The SDG indicator is more precise, focusing on gender equality. However, an intervention can use this indicator in a broader sense, covering aspects of equality and non-discrimination entailed in legal frameworks, which go beyond gender. Indicatively, the indicator can be used in order to monitor the existence of human rights-related legal frameworks which cover non-discrirmantion based on race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status such as disability, age, marital and family status, sexual orientation and gender identity, health status, place of residence, economic and social situation. SDG 5.1.1 is based on an assessment of legal frameworks that promote, enforce and monitor gender equality. The assessment is carried out by national counterparts, including National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and/or National Women’s Machinery (NWMs), and legal practitioners/researchers on gender equality, using a questionnaire comprising 45 yes/no questions under four areas of law: (i) overarching legal frameworks and public life; (ii) violence against women; (iii) employment and economic benefits; and (iv) marriage and family.

Number of persons removed from a forced labour situation following EU support, disaggregated by age and sex (OPSYS core indicator) (Number)

Data source

EU intervention monitoring and reporting systems: (i) interim and final reports from implementing organisations, (ii) ROM reviews and (iii) evaluations

Additional information

EU-funded support can include, for example, legal aid, assistance through Human Rights Defenders, etc. ILO C-29 defines forced labour as "all work or service which is exacted from any person under the threat of a penalty and for which the person has not offered himself or herself voluntarily." This can refer to, inter alia, abuse of vulnerability, deception, restriction of movement, isolation, physical and sexual violence, intimidation and threats, retention of identity documents, withholding of wages, debt bondage, abusive working and living conditions, excessive overtime, etc. 
 
ILO C-105 specifically prohibits the use of forced labour by states authorities to curtail freedom of expression and of association, to encourage discrimination of all kind, to pursue economic objectives or as means of labour discipline. 
 
It is important to underline the 2014 Protocol to ILO C-29 further defines forced labour by including trafficking – defined as “recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons for the purpose of exploitation”, as well as slavery – defined as forms of “forced labour, debt bondage, serfdom, children working in slavery or slavery-like conditions, domestic servitude, sexual slavery, and servile forms of marriage”.

SDG 5.5.2 (GAP III)- Proportion of women in managerial positions (OPSYS core indicator) (Percentage)

Data source

UN Global SDG Database https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/indicators/database (Data derived from International Labour Organization - ILO)

Additional information

SDG 5.5.2 (GAP III) - This indicator refers to the proportion of females in the total number of persons employed in managerial positions. It is recommended to use two different measures jointly for this indicator: the share of females in (total) management and the share of females in senior and middle management (thus excluding junior management). The joint calculation of these two measures provides information on whether women are more represented in junior management than in senior and middle management, thus pointing to an eventual ceiling for women to access higher-level management positions. In these cases, calculating only the share of women in (total) management would be misleading, in that it would suggest that women hold positions with more decision-making power and responsibilities than they actually do. For more detail, please see: https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/metadata/files/Metadata-05-05-02.pdf

SDG 5.c.1 (GAP III) - Proportion of countries with systems to track and make public allocations for gender equality and women’s empowerment (Percentage)

Data source

UN Global SDG Database https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/indicators/database Data derived from UN Women in collaboration with OECD and UNDP

Additional information

SDG 5.c.1 (GAP III) - The indicator measures government efforts to track budget allocations for gender equality throughout the public finance management cycle and to make these publicly available. This is an indicator of characteristics of the fiscal system. It is not an indicator of quantity or quality of finance allocated for gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). The indicator measures three criteria. The first focuses on the intent of a government to address GEWE by identifying if it has programs/policies and resource allocations to foster GEWE. The second assesses if a government has planning and budget tools to track resources for GEWE throughout the public financial management cycle. The third focuses on transparency by identifying if a government has provisions to make allocations for GEWE publicly available. The indicator aims to encourage national governments to develop appropriate budget tracking and monitoring systems and commit to making information about allocations for gender equality readily available to the public. The system should be led by the Ministry of Finance in collaboration with the sectoral ministries and National Women’s Machineries and overseen by an appropriate body such as Parliament or Public Auditors.

SDG 5.3.1 (GAP III) - This indicator measures the percentage of women aged 20-24 years who were married or in a union before age 15 and before age 18 compared to the total number of women aged 20-24 in the population. Both formal (i.e., marriages) and informal unions are covered under this indicator. Informal unions are generally defined as those in which a couple lives together for some time, intends to have a lasting relationship, but for which there has been no formal civil or religious ceremony (i.e., cohabitation). The indicator captures all formal and informal cohabiting unions. For comparability, age 18 is used as a standard across countries as the common age of majority, though the threshold age between childhood and adulthood varies across countries, as does the legal age at marriage. Based on the content of the intervention, this indicator may also be used at impact level. For more detail, please see: https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/metadata/files/Metadata-05-03-01.pdf

Women, Business and the Law Indicator scores: - Mobility - Workplace -Pay -Marriage -Parenthood -Entrepreneurship -Assets -Pension (Score)

Data source

World Bank "Women, Business and Law" Database: https://wbl.worldbank.org/en/data

Additional information

The World Bank "Women, Business and the Law" Database measures legal differences between men’s and women’s access to economic opportunities in 190 economies. Thirty-five aspects of the law are scored across eight indicators of four or five binary questions. Each indicator represents a different phase of a woman’s career. The methodology was designed as an easily replicable measure of the legal environment for women as entrepreneurs and employees. We update the data based on feedback from respondents with expertise in family, labour and criminal law. Indicator-level scores are obtained by calculating the unweighted average of the questions within that indicator and scaling the result to 100. Overall scores are then calculated by taking the average of each indicator, with 100 representing the highest possible score.

Country's score according to the CIVICUS Monitor in relation to country's quality of civic space (Score)

Data source

CIVICUS Monitor - Tracking Civic Space https://monitor.civicus.org/

Additional information

CIVICUS Monitor combines data from a range of sources and relies on a variety of sources before arriving at a rating for the quality of civic space in each country. Civic space is defined as the respect in law and practice for the freedoms of association, peaceful assembly and expression. Built into each of the three core freedoms is the understanding that a state has a duty to protect civil society, and must go beyond simply refraining from interfering in citizens' enjoyment of their rights. The difference can be calculated based on the annual score difference indicated by CIVICUS Monitor.

Data source

World Benchmarking Alliance Corporate Human Rights Benchmark indicator
https://www.worldbenchmarkingalliance.org/corporate-human-rights-benchma...

Chambers Logs, Private entities Standard Operating Procedures, EU intervention monitoring and reporting systems

Additional information

Qualitative assessment based on whether private sector entities  identify and assess the nature of their actual and potential adverse human rights impacts. The process of assessment should include all internationally recognised human rights as a reference point. The focus of the assessment is on risks to people not to the business. 

Depending on the size of the business enterprise and the nature and context of its operations, assessments should involve meaningful engagement with potentially affected individuals and groups. Consultation should be done in a manner that takes into account potential barriers to engagement, such as language. In situations where direct consultation is not possible, legally or logistically, business enterprises should consider reasonable alternatives such as consulting credible independent experts. 

If business enterprises have large number of entities in their value chain, it may be unreasonably difficult to conduct due diligence across all of them. If so, the company should identify general areas where the risks are most significant and prioritize among these. Assessments of impacts should be done at regular intervals and before any major decisions or changes in the operation. Business enterprises should pay special attention to any particular individuals from groups or populations that may be at heightened risk of vulnerability or marginalization. Finally, the company should ensure that all information on the potential impacts of its business operations are shared and accessible to potentially impacted individuals or communities.

Additional information

EURF - includes results for people benefitting from all kind of legal aid interventions supported by the EU, in order to combat all forms of discrimination. 

Legal aid is the provision of assistance to people otherwise unable to afford legal advice, assistance, representation and access to the court systems ensuring equality before the law, the right to counsel and the right to a fair trial. The nature and the scope of what could constitute ‘legal aid’ in practice, who are the providers of legal aid and who are the beneficiaries is very context-specific and varies from country to country. For the purpose of this methodological note, legal aid is understood very broadly, i.e. it includes the provision of legal education, information, advice, assistance as well as legal representation before all types of courts and justice institutions. It also includes support in view of solving a dispute through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms.
Sex-disaggregation is relevant.
