Parliamentary Engagement in CEDAW implementation, reporting and follow-up
14:00 to 17:00 CEST
To support members of parliament in their efforts to implement the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the IPU will hold a series of webinars for a select group of Parliaments.
The webinars are aimed at accompanying parliaments through the reporting process and supporting them in taking action for enhanced implementation of CEDAW.
The first of this series of webinars, which is to take place on 19 May, will provide MPs with an opportunity to interact with members from other parliaments and with CEDAW Committee experts on ways to engage with the Committee, on provisions of the Convention that are relevant to their work, as well as on ways to advance gender equality by using the Convention.
Invited to the workshop are:
- Parliaments of States that are tentatively scheduled for review at upcoming CEDAW sessions in 2022 (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrein, Belgium, Bolivia (Plurinational State of), China, Finland, Gambia, Honduras, Jamaica, Mongolia, Morocco, Namibia, Portugal, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Ukraine.)
- Parliaments that currently benefit from technical cooperation with IPU (Central African Republic, Ecuador, Djibouti, Indonesia, Mauritania, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania and Sierra Leone)
