Role of NGOs: Providing Alternative Information to the Committee

The CEDAW Committee welcomes the country-specific NGOs shadow/alternative reports providing additional information on the implementation of the Convention in the country concerned.

Many Shadow reports submitted to CEDAW Committee since July 2004 can be found at the website of IWRAW Asia Pacific: http://www.iwraw-ap.org/resources/shadow_reports.htm

In addition, NGOs can attend the review of their governments and make oral interventions as well as meet with Committee members to inform them about the most critical issues relating to women’s rights in your country.
