Promoting Women’s Human Rights Compliant Justice Delivery
PDF File Size: 2.46 MB | Download   
CEDAW is one of only two international human rights treaties that has been ratified by all countries in Southeast Asia, attesting to its importance in the region. The judiciary is an important mechanism for ensuring CEDAW implementation: however, international human rights standards, including CEDAW, are not sufficiently well known among many members of the judiciary. This is in part because lawyers and judges are not always adequately trained in international and regional human rights norms, and it is often difficult for them to access information or obtain advice about human rights jurisprudence. The CEDAW Convention is the only human rights treaty which affirms the reproductive rights of women and recognises culture and tradition as influential forces shaping gender roles and family relations. States parties also agree to take appropriate measures against all forms of traffic in women and exploitation of women. Countries that have ratified or acceded to the Convention are legally bound to put its provisions into practice.
