Cape Verde announced, Thursday, in Geneva, that it intends to apply to the United Nations Human Rights Council, by responding to the majority of the 159 recommendations within the scope of the universal periodic review.

The Minister of Justice, Joana Rosa, said that, despite “sparse resources”, the Government “has paid special attention” and “has spared no effort” for the promotion and defense of human rights.
“We have achieved notable gains and are recognized” internationally, said the official. “It is from this perspective that we intend to present our candidacy to the Human Rights Council for the period 2025-2027. We count on the support of all Member States for our candidacy”, said Joana Rosa.

The candidacy concluded the intervention of the Cape Verdean Minister of Justice at the 44th session of the Universal Periodic Review, in which she highlighted some of the goals achieved since 2018, the date of the last evaluation (third), and which served to show how the country has responded to the majority of the 159 recommendations made at the time.

The reduction of child labor by 50% (from 8% to around 4% of children), the gradual generalization of birth registration, the increase in social protection, gender equality, greater agility in justice and increased care for the prison population , were some of the points focused on, among dozens, in a list of measures in around 40 minutes.

On the occasion, the Cape Verdean Minister of Justice reported on the work done in the ratification of conventions and treaties, committing to complete the work in relation to documents that are overdue, particularly with the African Union (AU). Joana Rosa reaffirmed Cape Verde’s objective to eradicate extreme poverty by 2026.
