This chapter contains a revised version of the 1996 Paul Seighart Memorial Lecture, delivered by at the British Institute of Human Rights in March 1996. It remains in the form of a public lecture which looks back on a period of tenure as a member of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Committee (1984–1995). The lecture offers a personal perspective on the work and functioning of the Committee and outlines the serious problems created by inadequate resourcing of its work. It describes the impact of the political changes in Central and Eastern Europe, including in the former Yugoslavia, and provides an insight into the complex relationship between the work of the Committee and the regional human rights mechanisms.
