In June, the C-24 holds its substantive session in New York for two weeks during which it examines the situations in the Non-Self-Governing Territories under its purview and adopts recommendations in the form of draft resolutions to the General Assembly. In recent years, during the June substantive session, the C-24 considers the questions of 17 Non-Self-Governing Territories and Puerto Rico, and adopts resolutions as well as conclusions and recommendations of the regional seminar. The C-24 also hears views of Member States, administering Powers, representatives of Non-Self-Governing Territories and petitioners.
