Comment by the Information and Press Department on the election of Aslan Abashidze to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Tuesday, 17 April 2018 18:08

On April 16, an election for members of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) was held during a Coordination and Management Meeting of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in New York. Russian Professor and Doctor of Law Aslan Abashidze has been re-elected to the CESCR, a UN expert body monitoring the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by the member states, for another four-year term.

The Russian Federation attaches much importance to CESCR activities and its efforts to encourage and protect economic, social and cultural rights, which receive undeservedly little attention from the international community.

The re-election of Aslan Abashidze is evidence of the international expert community’s recognition of his extensive skills and professionalism. We are convinced that Mr Abashidze will continue to make a great contribution to CESCR operations and that the Committee will largely benefit from his professionalism, experience in working at UN human rights agencies and extensive practice in international law and in human rights law.
