At the 103rd session which took place online from 19th to 30th April, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) adopted follow-up letters to Iceland, Jordan, Mexico, Poland and the State of Palestine.
Within one year of the adoption of concluding observations, States parties are required to provide information on the implementation of specific recommendations identified by the CERD (follow-up recommendations), in accordance with Article 9 (1) of the Convention and rule 65 of the rules of procedure.
One of the three categories (satisfactory; partially satisfactory; and not satisfactory) is applied by the CERD to assess information from States parties on the implementation of follow-up recommendations. The table below shows the follow-up recommendations to the States concerned and the CERD’s assessments.
