Raoul wallenberg institute of human rights and humanitarian law : general comments or recommendations adipted by united nations human rights treaty bodies
Each of these treaties has a committee that monitors the way in which States Parties are fulfilling their human rights obligations under the respective treaty. The committees, also known as treaty bodies, vary in size from 10 to 23 members and are composed of international human rights experts. Committee members serve for four-year terms and, although they are elected by the States Parties, they serve in their personal capacity and not as representatives of their governments. Members generally do not take part in deliberations concerning their own country. The committees meet for several weeks each year, usually in Geneva. The Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women meets in New York; and the Human Rights Committee meets once in New York and twice in Geneva each year. If your country is not a party to a relevant treaty, you cannot invoke the treaty's procedures formally to redress violations of the treaty's protections. In these cases, however, you may be able to use the Charter-based procedures created by the UN Commission on Human Rights and other bodies, which are described in Pamphlet No. 3 of this series.
