This is the April 9, 1979 hearing on "Review of the 35th Session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights" held before the Subcommittee on International Organizations of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Don Bonker: "This is the first in a series of annual hearings that we will be conducting to review the work on the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, as this subcommittee is charged with the responsibility of implementation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The hearing today has a dual purpose: To review the work of the 35th session of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, which recently met in Geneva, and to assess the role played by the U.S. delegation to the Commission during its annual session. We will probably also get into some of the issues and actions o f the last session and what has followed since recommendations were made by the Commission at the 34th session. Also, we will be looking into the President's report on reform and restructuring of the U.N. system, which includes several proposals to improve the effectiveness of international human rights machinery." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John H. Buchanan, Edward M. Mezvinsky, and Warren Hewitt.
