The UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights has published their concluding observations on the fourth periodic review of human rights in New Zealand.

The Committee welcomes the legislative, institutional and policy measures taken to ensure a high level of protection of economic, social and cultural rights in the State party.

The Committee raised concerns about a number of issues including high rates of domestic and gender-based violence, bias against Māori, and the legal enforceability of the Treaty of Waitangi.
