IWRAW Asia Pacific Partner Feedback to the Update on General Recommendation No. 19 on Violence Against Women by CEDAW
In July 2016, the CEDAW Committee sought inputs from experts and civil society organisations (CSOs) for a draft General Recommendation 19 (GR 19) expanding upon the 1992 GR. To support this work by the Committee, prior to the draft being publicly shared, IWRAW Asia Pacific led an initiative to gather feedback from both CSOs and experts on GBVAW via an online survey. 26 responses from women’s rights organisations and networks, academics, and other experts specializing in work on GBVAW were collated and synthesised in this 21-page report in PDF format.
