1. On 13 June 2002, the Ministers’ Deputies adopted Resolution Res(2002)8 on the Statute of ECRI. In accordance with Article 2 of ECRI’s Statute, the members of ECRI should have high moral authority and recognised expertise in dealing with racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance. They should serve in their individual capacity and should be independent and impartial in fulfilling their mandate. They should not receive any instructions from their government.

2. In accordance with Article 3.3 of ECRI’s Statute, if the Committee of Ministers were to consider that the appointment of one or more members of ECRI would not be in conformity with the provisions of Article 2 of ECRI’s Statute, it may ask the member state(s) concerned to make another appointment.

3. In accordance with Article 3.5 of the Statute, the members of ECRI shall be appointed for a term of office of five years, which may be renewed. During their term of office, they may only be replaced if they have tendered their resignation, or are no longer able to exercise their functions.

4. In accordance with Article 4 of the Statute, if the government so wishes, a deputy to the ECRI member may be appointed. The provisions of articles 2 and 3 of the Statute shall also apply to the appointment of deputy members except that their mandate shall in all cases expire at the same time as that of the ECRI member.

5. Document DG-HL(2008)7 reproduces the curriculum vitae communicated with the notification received concerning the renewal of the ECRI member in respect of Switzerland whose term of office is expiring on 1 January 2009.
