Statement on Nigeria’s Adoption of the 31st UPR Recommendations
Thank you Mr President, the Federation for Women and Family Planning makes this statement on behalf of the Equality Triangle Initiative.
Nigeria received over 60 recommendations relating to sexual and reproductive rights and health, including on violence and discrimination against women and girls, early and forced marriages, harmful cultural practices, HIV and AIDS, SRHR services and general health services - the majority of these recommendations were accepted by Nigeria and we commend Nigeria for doing so.
Human Rights Council – 34th session
Item : Universal Periodic Review Outcomes: Uganda
Statement by Action Canada for Population and Development
This submission argues that the concept of trafficking should be debunked to give way to policies that ensure migrant rights and address migrant labour. In doing this, it deals with the definition of trafficking in the Convention and its consequent impact on women and girls, especially in the context of migration. The CEDAW Committee now has an opportunity to reframe the understanding of state obligations and standards on the issue of trafficking from a gender perspective, so that it is grounded in human rights and upholds bodily autonomy of women and girls.
Juan S. Jaime P. and Pooja Badarinath tell us about the CEDAW Committee's half-day of discussion on trafficking in women and girls in the context of global migration, and about the Sexual Rights Initiative's submission to the Committee.
Read about the day of discussion here.
