Consultation with U.S. Government Representatives on UNCERD
July 24, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am EDT
The State Department invites you to participate in a civil society consultation with representatives from the U.S. Government on Monday, July 24 from 1:30 – 3:30 PM at the State Department, 2201 C Street, Washington, DC 20520, Room 1105.
The consultation is being held as part of our preparation for the United States’ next periodic report, due to the UNCERD Committee later this year, and will focus on the topics raised in the Committee’s 2014 Concluding Observations and Recommendations. The format of the consultation will be in the style of a Town Hall, with speaking slots for civil society followed by a section at the end of the consultation for U.S. Government responses.
Please RSVP to CERD@state.gov no later than close of business on Monday, July 17th with the following information: (i) your name, (ii) institutional affiliation, (iii) whether you will participate in person or by telephone. Based on your acceptance of this invitation, the State Department will provide additional information to facilitate your entry into the State Department and/or provide call-in information. Written statements provided in advance are strongly encouraged, in order to permit U.S. Government participants to prepare to discuss topics of interest. Please limit your statements and remarks to topics related to working group six. Please e-mail any advance written statements/topic areas to CERD@state.gov by the RSVP deadline, so that we may review them prior to the event.
If RSVPs exceed capacity, organizations who have responded may be asked to limit attendance to one or two representatives. The consultation is off the record and closed to the press.
