Seminar on the role of parliamentarians in implementing the CEDAW Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women

March 1, 2012 until March 30, 2012

The Seminar enabled the Parliament of Uganda to discuss the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th observations and recommendations made about Uganda’s progress report by the UN Committee on Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women. Consequently, a motion was moved to amend the rules of procedure by ensuring that, before Ministries and parastatal organisations present country status reports to the United Nations and other stakeholders, these reports are first discussed and adopted by the Parliament. The workshop guided participants on how Uganda can make its national legislative and policy framework fully into compliance with the Convention.

Location: Kampala, Uganda
