Concluding Observations on the Eighth Periodic Report of Ukraine

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) is an international legal instrument that requires countries to eliminate discrimination against women and girls in all areas and promotes women’s and girls’ equal rights. Every four years countries that have ratified CEDAW submit periodic reports on the status of the implementation of the Convention. Upon the review of these reports, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women provides its Concluding Observations.

The Concluding Observations on the Eighth Periodic Report of Ukraine were provided by the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women to Ukraine on 3 March 2017. They highlight the existing gaps and identify the actions required by Ukraine to address issues related to women’s human rights and represent the road map for the implementation of the CEDAW during the coming four years before the next state report on the implementation of the CEDAW.
