This chapter examines Article 34 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which addresses the establishment of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the treaty monitoring body for the CRPD. Specifically, Article 34 sets forth parameters related to the general functioning of the Committee, including selection of members, the size of the Committee, terms of members, and certain of the logistical aspects of the Committee’s operations, such as adoption of rules of procedure, staffing, and facilities, as well as the status of the Committee’s members. The chapter provides an overview of the drafting history of Article 34, with analysis of the article’s specific provisions. It begins by considering the Committee’s place in the larger UN human rights system.
