UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination to Review Cambodian Implementation

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination to review Cambodia, Colombia, Ireland, Israel, and Uzbekistan

GENEVA (22 November 2019) — The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination will meet in Geneva from 25 November to 13 December 2019 to review Cambodia, Colombia, Ireland, Israel, and Uzbekistan.

The above are among the 182 States parties to the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and thus are required to undergo regular reviews on how they are implementing the Convention as well as the Committee’s previous recommendations.

The Committee will hold dialogues with delegations from the respective governments and be briefed by NGOs, national human rights institutions and independent monitoring frameworks. The Committee will also continue its work regarding the inter-state communications submitted to it in 2018.

The public sessions will take place in the Ground Floor Conference Hall of Palais Wilson in Geneva. A full schedule of meetings is available online here.

The sessions will be Webcast live at http://webtv.un.org/live, and the recommended hashtag for the meeting is #CERD100.

More information about the session, including reports submitted by the States, is available on the session Webpage. Information is also available regarding media accreditation.

The Committee is scheduled to publish its findings on the respective States, known as concluding observations, on 13 December 2019, here.

ENDS

The Committee is made up of 18 members who are independent human rights experts drawn from around the world, who serve in their personal capacity and not as representatives of States parties. The Committee’s concluding observations are an independent assessment of States’ compliance with their human rights obligations under the treaty.
