IDSN facilitates the submission of shadow reports and supports joint NGO statements to several UN human rights bodies, including the Human Rights Council, UPR, UN treaty bodies, Special Rapporteurs and the Durban Review Conference.

Since 2023 the UN has created a system where you can search for caste or Dalits in all UN documentation here:  We therefore refer to this for references going forward.

Up to January 2022 the outcomes were monitored and documented by IDSN and compiled in the comprehensive compilation of how caste discrimination and similar forms of discrimination based on work and descent have been addressed by the UN treaty bodies, Universal Periodic Review, and the Special Procedures
