The ICJ has made a submission to the CEDAW in advance of the examination of Kazakhstan’s combined third and fourth periodic reports under Article 18 of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.
The ICJ submission draws the Committee’s attention to concerns related to gender-based violence and gender-discrimination.
It also includes a number of broadly framed recommendations urging the authorities in Kazakhstan to address these concerns and give effect to the State Party’ obligations under the Convention.
The Committee will examine the combined third and fourth periodic reports of Kazakhstan during its 57th session in February 2014, following which it will adopt Concluding Observations setting out recommendations to the Government of Kazakhstan.
