Working group on the protection of vulnerable and disadvantaged consumers

At its second session in 2017, the Intergovernmental group of experts on consumer protection law and policy requested the UNCTAD secretariat to convene a working group on the protection of vulnerable and disadvantaged consumers to highlight best practices, to facilitate information exchange and consultations, and to continue the work from the Group, led and integrated by member States on a voluntary basis, without financial implications for the regular budget of the United Nations, and to report to the third session of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts. It reported to the third session of the Intergovernmental group of experts, when it concluded its mandate.

The Working Group met regularly and informally through teleconferences and was open to Government representatives, with relevant expertise (for example national consumer protection authorities); interested international organizations and networks; and relevant stakeholders from the private sector, civil society and academia.
