African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC)

The African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC) consists of 11 Experts who are mandated by the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child to monitor and report on the fulfillment of child rights in Africa. Experts are nominated by Governments and elected by the Assembly of Heads of State of the African Union for a term of five years, but serve on the Committee in their individual capacity. The Committee reviews reports and complaints concerning State Parties to the Charter, undertakes investigative and fact-finding missions, and interprets the provisions of the Charter through general comments, resolutions and declarations. The Committee generally meets twice per calendar year and is supported by a Secretariat hosted by the Department of Social Affairs within the African Union Commission. Website: www.acerwc.org/
