Roles of judges and parliamentarians in implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women
The Division is engaged in strenghtening the active involvement and contribution by judges and members of parliament in implementation of the Covention. Parliamentarians, as drivers of legal reform, and judges, as implementers and interpreters of relevant legislation and standard-setters on the rights of women, are critical stakeholders in implementation of the Convention. Their role has become even more visible in light of recent calls by the Committee for increased judicial and parliamentary involvement in implementation, reporting and awareness-raising on the Convention.
