CEDAW Committee

The CEDAW Committee is the UN body that monitors the implementation of the CEDAW Convention. It comprises 23 experts who represent the range of fields of competence covered by the CEDAW Convention, as well as equitable geographical distribution and principle legal systems.

States parties submit initial and periodic reports for the CEDAW Committee to review. These reports should indicate the legal, administrative and programmatic measures they have adopted to give effect to the provisions of the CEDAW Convention. This review takes place in sessions previously conducted twice a year, once in January and the other in June.
