The UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED) will meet in Geneva from 5 to 16 November 2018 to review Japan and Portugal, and conduct a follow-up dialogue with Mexico.
The Committee, which is composed of 10 international independent human rights experts, monitors implementation of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
The above States are among the 59 that have ratified the Convention and so are required to submit a report for review to the Committee. The recommended hashtag for the meetings will be #CED15 and the sessions will also be Webcast live.
Committee members will discuss a range of issues relating to implementation of the Convention with the respective State delegations, and also hear from NGOs and national human rights institutions. More information is available on the Committee’s webpage for the session.
The Committee is scheduled to publish its findings on Japan on Friday, November 16 and its findings on Portugal and Mexico on Monday, November 19, 2018.
