United Nations Human Rights Committee
The United Nations Human Rights Committee is a treaty body made of 18 experts, created by a 1966 human rights treaty, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
The Committee meets for three four-week sessions per year to talk about reports given to the 173 States parties to the ICCPR. The Committee is one of ten UN human rights treaty bodies, each responsible for supporting human rights.
