Continuing its resumed 2021 session, the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations today closed the application of one entity seeking special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council and postponed action on 31 others whose applications were deferred from previous sessions.
The Committee also took note of several quadrennial reports submitted by non-governmental organizations in consultative status with the Council.
The 19-member Committee considers applications for consultative status and requests for reclassification submitted by non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Once an application has been reviewed and approved by the Committee it is considered recommended for consultative status. Organizations which were granted general and special status can attend meetings of the Council and issue statements, while those with general status can also speak during meetings and propose agenda items. Organizations with roster status can only attend meetings.
Action on the applications was postponed pending responses to Committee members’ questions on matters related to the organizations’ activities, partners, expenditures and sources of funding, among other matters.
The Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations will meet again at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 8 September, to continue its resumed session.
Special Consultative Status
The Committee postponed action on the applications of the following organizations:
Gulf Centre for Human Rights Limited (Ireland) — as China’s representative asked about recommendations that emerged from the organization’s working groups;
Hestia Hellas MAKE (Greece) — as Turkey’s representative asked about the relationship between the organization at its branch registered separately in North America, notably in relation to finances;
Hokok Coalición Internacional Contra la Impunidad (Spain) — as Bahrain’s delegate requested details about its activities in 2020 and 2021, as well as about its planned activities, as its 3 February answer to the Committee’s question did not include this information;
Humanium (Switzerland) — as Cuba’s representative, noting that 35 per cent of its income derives from other NGOs, and 19 per cent from international organizations, requested the names of these entities;
IFEX (Canada) — as India’s asked for a list of countries in which it operates, and about the activities undertaken in the last two years;
Inimõiguste Instituut (Estonia) — as the Russian Federation’s delegate, referring to a 19 August response, requested details about the relationship between the organization and the Open Society Fund, notably relating to joint projects undertaken;
Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (United States) — as China’s representative asked for the list of the countries that form its investor alliance;
International Action Network for Gender Equity and Law (United States) — as China’s representative requested an update on its formation of an advisory committee;
International Dalit Solidarity Network (Denmark) — as India’s delegate asked about the agenda, outcome and participants in its meetings with officials on the margins of a session of the Human Rights Council;
International Human Rights Commission La Commission Internationale des Droits de l’homme Mezinárodní komise pro lidská práva – nadační fond, ve zkrácené formě IHRC – nadační fond (Czech Republic) — as Estonia’s delegate asked about the organization’s founding documents and its working methods, which appear to reflect those of an international organization, rather than a non-governmental organization. The representative of the Russian Federation similarly stated that the group’s 24 May reply has “put us in a deadlock”, as it cites a ministry and other competent bodies in Chad referring to the group as an intergovernmental organization. If this is the case, the organization cannot be considered by the Committee. He asked the Secretariat how to proceed with the application, if this is in fact the case, and whether the group’s presence has created a violation in its submission of documentation.
A Secretariat official, replying, said the fact that the file was transmitted to the Committee implies that “the basic elements were there” to state that the group is a non-governmental organization. At this stage, the simplest way to proceed is to ask the organization what it considers to be the nature of its work, he said. Once the reply is received, the Committee will be in a better position to judge what further action to take with regard to the group’s request. A clarification should be sought before determining whether the group has committed a violation.
The Russian Federation’s representative then requested that the description of the group on page 2 of the application by a Government Ministry in Chad be shown on the Committee’s video screen, as it states that the group was registered as an “international diplomatic organization”.
Interregional non-governmental human rights organization “Man and Law” (Russian Federation) — as China’s delegate asked the group to indicate its partner non-governmental organizations in Central Asia;
Non c’è pace senza giustizia (Italy) — as Bahrain’s representative asked the group to provide more information about a certain affiliation;
Norwegian Church Aid (Norway) — as China’s representative, pointing to a higher expenditure than income, asked the group to explain the gap;
Panhellenic Union of Cappadocian Associations (Greece) — as Turkey’s representative asked for more information about its partners other than the research organizations that are already members of the Council;
Photographers without Borders (Canada) — as China’s delegate asked whether the organization published a biannual magazine and held an exhibition, as mentioned in response to question 5, and asked about the reasons why any of these activities might not have been carried out;

The Andrey Rylkov Foundation for Health and Social Justice (Russian Federation) — as China’s delegate said the group’s 19 July response indicates that only one joint project was carried out with the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network, and she asked if this was indeed the only project undertaken with that group.

The Center for Bioethics and Culture (United States) — as China’s representative asked about an invitation extended to the group to attend two Commission on the Status of Women meetings;
The International Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights (United States) — as Nicaragua’s delegate asked for details about the group’s activities in her country and if it could provide a list of partners, while Cuba’s delegate, pointing to its response to question 6, asked for details about sources of information related to violations of human rights, and about how it has been able to carry out its activities if it has a deficit;
The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) (United States) — as Pakistan’s representative requested information about the group’s offices and number of employees in Asia, as well as about its participation with United Nations entities;
Treatment Action Group (United States) — as Cuba’s representative asked for details about sources of its income and about how it ensures independence from donor agencies;
