NIWEP CEDAW Consultation 2011-2012 5


The UK Government submitted its report to the CEDAW Committee in June 2011. Read the report here. It is likely that the UK Government will be examined by the CEDAW Committee in the first quarter of 2013.

The Government at Westminster has overall responsibility for the implementation of the CEDAW standards throughout the UK.  However, the Northern Ireland Executive has responsibility locally for most of the social policy and economic issues that the CEDAW Convention is concerned with.

The UK Government was last examined by the CEDAW Committee in July 2008.  NIWEP played a key role in coordinating consultations with women’s groups and other relevant bodies, collecting evidence and compiling a Shadow Report.  NIWEP’s 2008 Shadow Report and other information on our participation in the examination of the UK Government is available here.

The CEDAW Committee’s 2008 Concluding Observations showed that the Committee had taken account of submissions by NIWEP and other Northern Ireland organizations and a number of strong recommendations were made with regard to Northern Ireland. You can read the Concluding Observations here.

Since 2008 we have continued to increase awareness of the CEDAW Convention and lobby for the applications of the standards set out in the Convention. We have also been monitoring the progress of Government, especially with regard to the Concluding Observations.

We are now in the process of consulting about the content of the next Shadow Report. In addition to the face to face consultations we are holding we have devised a template for feedback to us. The template covers each article of the CEDAW Convention. You can submit evidence on all or some of the articles. Where possible please provide evidence to support your comments (including reference to evaluations, statistics, research, consultations). In addition to your views on what progress has been made by the Northern Ireland Executive and the UK Government in relation to the Committee’s concluding observations, we would also welcome your views on other issues which you feel the Committee should be made aware of.

    Newfoundland is an example that a doiminon could be reverted to crown colony status. Some members of the West Indies Federation had reverted to crown colony status too. But I agree with Fong Yun that a League of Nations Mandate or UN Trust Territory status is more suitable, if not as one of the home countries of the UK with substantial devolution at least comparable to that of Scotland.

    > TC兄,香港人幾西化都好,絕大多數人仍然有見到傳統中國式長輩(leader or age or seniority in psootiin wise)就啽低頭的惡習,而且呢種submission唔係respect then follow的美德,而係leader is your mini emperor的思維。你有少少獨立思維就被扣帽子係鬼仔集慣,香港人要發展民有民治民享,真係要訓政15年才成(同英美簽15年agreement,西方派一批外國supervisors監管香港國民教育,廢除封建思維;另外,監視香港民選政府,制止家長式統治在香港發生,班supervisors受祖家民選政府政府監管)It wasn’t successful in Japan or South Korea, even though they have actually been ruled by the US not to mention the Free Area of the ROC. Party system has never been established, e.g., in all these jurisdictions.
