CSI at the 65th session of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)

States have various obligations before international human rights bodies, the mechanisms established by multilateral human rights treaties. One of such treaty is the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) to which Armenia is signatory since 1993. Consisting of a preamble and 30 articles, the Convention defines what constitutes discrimination against women and sets up an agenda for national action to end such discrimination.
