Standing Committee meetings

In October 1995, ExCom established a Standing Committee (see A/AC.96/860) to replace sub‑committees on international protection and on administrative and financial matters.

The chairing of the Standing Committee is shared by the ExCom Chairperson and the Vice‑Chairpersons. The Standing Committee is scheduled to meet three times a year.

At its periodic meetings, the Standing Committee examines thematic issues included by the plenary in its programme of work, reviews UNHCR’s activities and programmes in the different regions (as well as its global programmes), adopts appropriate decisions and conclusions on issues included by the plenary in its programme of work, and discusses other issues that it deems of concern.
