The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is a UN Convention which was signed by the United Kingdom in 1981, and ratified in 1986. UN Conventions are signed by member states only, and therefore Scotland is not a signatory to CEDAW, although many of the women’s rights protected by CEDAW fall under legislation which is devolved to Scotland.
Join Engender and the Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law as we launch a paper exploring whether CEDAW should be incorporated into Scots Law, and what other legal mechanisms Scotland could create to enable the realisation of women's rights.
There will be time for questions and informal chat.
Refreshments will be provided, and there is step-free access to the venue. If you have any dietary or access requirements, please mention these in the 'special requirements' box on the booking page, and you can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the event.
