The Committee is the only UN human rights investigative "committee" composed of the official representatives of UN member states - currently Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Senegal - without even the pretense of independence or expertise. One of those states, Malaysia, does not even have diplomatic relations with Israel.


The Committee was established by A/RES/2443 (XXIII) adopted by the General Assembly on December 19, 1968 by a vote of 60 for, 22 against and 37 abstentions.

(By A/RES/44/48 of December 8, 1989, the name was changed from Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Population of the Occupied Territories.)
