A Practical Guide to the UN Committee on NGOs
ISHR's Practical Guide to the UN Committee on NGOs has been updated. The 2017 edition is now available in English and Spanish.
ISHR's Practical Guide to the UN Committee on NGOs (updated in July 2017) is an essential resource for all non-governmental organisations looking to 'get past the gatekeeper' and obtain UN consultative status as a means to engage effectively with its human rights system. The UN Committee on NGOs is the body through which all NGO applications for Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) accreditation with the UN human rights system must pass. This handbook is a response to an intense need for information and explanations about decision-making in the Committee and the overall process of obtaining ECOSOC accreditation.
