PRESS RELEASE 135
Mikel Mancisidor de la Fuente, Re-elected as member of the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
15/09/2020

​On 14 September 2020, the Spanish candidate Mikel Mancisidor de la Fuente was re-elected in New York by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) as a member of the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR), for the period 2021-2024.

The CESCR is a body made up of 18 independent experts that supervises the application of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by its Member States.

Spain maintains a firm commitment to the Treaty bodies, complying with the presentation of their periodical reports and other obligations deriving from the Treaties, and supporting a presence on the committees of Spanish independent experts of renowned prestige.

Mr Mancisidor, as a current member of the CESCR, has contributed very actively to the promotion and protection of economic, social and cultural rights; his re-election offering continuity to this work. He is particularly committed to the fields of science, technology and human rights, on which he has been working, inter alia, through the presidency of the International Institute for the Human Right to Science, and now on the CESCR, as a Special Rapporteur of the General Observation on Science and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Mikel Mancisidor expressed his commitment to the Committee in the following terms: The Committees are not the mere sum of 18 experts. They are working groups and teams. They oversee the respect, confidence and human quality between experts and of these experts through delegations, the representatives of States, public servants and civil society, being part of our important work, which also impacts on the success and effectiveness of our mission”.
