Example text

There are certain requirements that have to be met in order for an ad hoc committee to be created. Typically, this occurs when the African Group of the Whole identifies a specific problem that is of some importance to Africa, discusses it, but cannot find a quick or easy solution. In that case it authorizes its Chairman to request the Permanent Missions of a number of Member States to appoint experts or specialists from their countries to study the specific problem. These experts and specialists then constitute an ad hoc committee on that issue and are given a specified amount of time to examine it and report to the African Group.

For example, the 25th of May of each year, the anniversary of the signing of the OAU Charter, has been designated by the Group as Africa Day. During the festivities commemorating the occasion, the Welcome Committee always organizes a solemn ceremony including speeches, presentations, and other formal activities. A good number of these ceremonies are held in the premises of the Libyan Permanent Mission to the UN, which has a huge reception hall and is located close to the UN Headquarters. The Libyan Mission has also proved willing on several occasions to bear the financial cost of staging these events.

The personnel working at the diplomatic mission are therefore international civil servants employed by the continental organization. Other regional organizations, such as the European Union, the Arab League, or the Organization of American States, also have observer status at the UN. On the other hand, this AU office functions as the Executive Secretariat of the African Group at the UN. In that connection, it performs all the usual duties of a secretariat, such as typing, filing, or preparing and distributing official documents to the various African delegations to the UN.
