Matters brought to the attention of States parties

The Committee is grateful to the General Assembly for the extension of its meeting time in 2006 and 2007. It met for the first time in parallel chambers at its thirty-sixth session, where it considered the reports of fourteen States parties, whose delegations participated in a very active manner in the constructive dialogue. Having undertaken an assessment of this first experience, the Committee is of the view that the parallel chambers allowed for a more in-depth and careful consideration of the status of implementation of, and compliance with the Convention in the reporting States. The Committee is also satisfied with the working methods in the parallel chambers, and confirms that their flexible use enhanced the constructive dialogue. The Committee intends to further build on the experience gained and to improve the working methods in parallel chambers at future sessions, including its time management, so as to further enhance the quality of the constructive dialogue.
