Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development

In order to fulfil its mandate of searching for, identifying and sharing best practices with Member States and to promote the implementation of the right to development worldwide, the Expert Mechanism undertakes thematic studies. Each member of the Mechanism is responsible for a study on a theme proposed by him/her and agreed by the Expert Mechanism. In preparation of the study, members can consult States and a wide range of other relevant stakeholders and/or undertake country study visits. The Expert Mechanism discusses the draft studies presented by the concerned member and approves them for submission to the Human Rights Council for its consideration.
