The UN's Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights is the monitoring body responsible for scrutinising the implementation of the ICESCR by its states parties. The latter are required to submit periodic reports to the Committee on the measures taken and progress made to ensure respect for the rights covered by the ICESCR.
In Switzerland, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs is responsible for coordinating the reporting process.
Switzerland submitted its first report in 1996. Its second and third reports were submitted together in 2008 and the Committee issued its recommendations in November 2010. Switzerland submitted its fourth report in 2018 and presented it orally in Geneva in October 2019. On 18 October 2019, the Committee adopted its recommendations concerning Switzerland.
