Chapter Summary

The composition of the Committee reflects the preferences of the States Parties to the Convention, and is likely to change according to the alignments within the group of States Parties. A Report for the Panel on International Human Rights Law and its Implementation of the American Society of International Law, submitted by Nathaniel L. Nathanson and Egon Schwelb, points out that for the first two years of its operation the composition of the Committee was heavily loaded against the West. In view of the variety of geographic areas and political systems to which the members of the Committee belong, it should be stressed that the work of the Committee was remarkably harmonious. The reports to the General Assembly, and the summary records released for general circulation show that even those debates in which conflicting political or philosophical views were expressed seldom acquired the tones frequent in other international bodies.
