2. Call for Contributions – Human Rights Council Advisory Committee on Current levels of Representation of Women in Human Rights Organs and Mechanisms. The Human Rights Council Advisory Committee has extended its deadline to 29 May 2020 to receive contributions and inputs from relevant stakeholders, including Member States, international and regional organizations, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the special procedures, national human rights institutions, civil society and academic institutions, for its report on Current levels of representation of women in human rights organs and mechanisms. This is a great  opportunity to contribute to the debate on improving gender balance in international courts and organs. In June 2019, the Human Rights Council adopted Resolution 41/6, in which it requested the Advisory Committee to prepare a report, in close cooperation with the Working Group on Discrimination against Women (WG) and the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, on current levels of representation of women in human rights organs and mechanisms such as the Advisory Committee, the treaty bodies and the special procedures established by the Human Rights Council. The Rapporteur of the Advisory Committee leading the drafting of the report is Professor Elizabeth Salmon from Peru. For more information on the Resolution and the questionnaire to guide contributions and views, click here.
