2016 Global Conference

8-9 December 2016

The 2016 Global Conference took place in Geneva. It brought together academics and observers from civil society and treaty bodies to discuss the various issues considered by the three regional consultations held in 2016; the progress made; areas needing further research in relation to the functioning of treaty bodies, treaty bodies’ membership, individual complaint procedures, and the relationship of treaty bodies with national and regional mechanisms and the rest of the UN system.

Immediately following the conference, the Geneva Academy co-organized with the Permanent Missions of Costa Rica and Switzerland to the UN in Geneva a briefing for states to inform them about the Academic Platform on Treaty Body Review 2020. A similar briefing for NGOs was co-organized with the International Service for Human Rights.
