Committee of Experts

The Committee of Experts is the technical part of the MESECVI, responsible for the analysis and evalaution of the implementation of the Convention.

It is composed of independent Experts that are appointed by each of the States Party and serve the MESECVI in a personal capacity.

The responsibilities of the Committee of Experts include:

  • Preparing and circulating the questionnaire on the implementation of the Belém do Pará Convention
  • Evaluating the State Party responses and formulating recommendations to strengthen the implementation of the Convention
  • Producing the national and hemispheric reports
  • Identifying and circulating the indicators to measure the implementation of the Belém do Pará Convention
  • Producing the follow-up report

In the evaluation of the national reports and the formulation of recommendations, the Committee organizes itself into working groups.

All of the Experts have access to the State responses to the questionnaires, although no Expert participates in the evaluation of her own State Party.
