ARTICLE 37 COMMITTEE OF THE PARTIES
Open access

This chapter presents Article 37 of the CoE Convention against Trafficking, which deals with the establishment of the ‘Committee of the Parties’ to the Convention, which forms a political peer dimension to the monitoring process, in conjunction with the work of GRETA, the Convention’s independent expert monitoring body (Article 36). It begins with a short introduction, generally providing an overview of the main issues covered by the chapter. It then reviews the drafting history or preparatory work of the provision; provides a comparative analysis of this provision in the context of other international or regional legal instruments focused on human trafficking; and finally discusses issues of interpretation.
