Elected Members of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (as of June 2016)

The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is the body of independent experts which monitors implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by States Parties. All States Parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the CRPD is being implemented. States Parties must report initially within two years of accepting the Convention and every four years thereafter. The Committee examines each report and makes suggestions and general recommendations on the report as it may consider appropriate and then forwards these to the State Party concerned.
