Background

The Human Rights Council, in its resolution 45/6, welcomed the first report of the Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development (A/HRC/45/29), and requested it to implement the recommendations contained therein, including the preparation and submission to the Council of one to two thematic studies per year in the discharge of Expert Mechanism’s mandate.

During its first 3-year mandate, the Expert Mechanism completed five thematic studies. For its second 3-year tenure the Expert Mechanism will elaborate on six studies, that it intends to submit to the Human Rights Council.

In the above context and at the request of the Expert Mechanism, OHCHR would like to invite Member States and other stakeholders, including international organizations, national human rights institutions, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions to provide inputs to the study on “Women’s active, free and meaningful participation in development, with emphasis on decision-making.
