13.07.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This study presents and analyses successes and good practices in the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in the Arab countries. The study also analyses the obligations of the Arab States under the Convention, their reservations to certain articles of the Convention and the implementation of the observations and recommendations of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. The study also sheds light on several good practices in the implementation of CEDAW in Arab countries and to legislative reforms, and monitors the modernization factors in favour of the political, social and economic rights of women in these countries. The study also highlights the role of civil society, women’s movements and international organizations in pushing governments to take action and adopt necessary legislations to eliminate discrimination against women.
