Sessions

Working Group on the use of mercenaries

The Working Group on the use of mercenaries meets three times per year, twice in Geneva and once in New York. Generally, the sessions are held in closed meetings during which the Working Group covers a wide range of issues, including, among other things, thematic work, communications and specific country engagement.

During its sessions, the Working Group systematically engages with Member States, civil society, UN entities and other stakeholders.
