Chapter Summary

By virtue of the Article 43(1) of the Convention, the CRC Committee was installed to assess the progress made by the States regarding the fulfillment of their obligations. The members of the Committee receive emoluments from the UN resources and they are being supported by the CRC Secretariat in Geneva, consisting of UN staff and facilities. The Committee's first sessions were devoted to practical matters, such as the drafting of its Provisional Rules of Procedure and the reporting guidelines. Apart from the official sessions, the Committee organises a number of informal regional meetings. These meetings intend to promote the provisions of the CRC on a regional level. It also encourages international cooperation in the field of children's rights and to offer its members the opportunity to examine the situation of the rights of the child on the spot.
