Event Outline

The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is an international UN treaty that aims to achieve equality between men & women and to end discrimination that women face. CEDAW was a driver behind introduction of several Singapore laws including Protection of Harassment Act, Prevention of Human Trafficking Act, etc. Understanding CEDAW and its processes will be useful to legal practitioners who wish to anticipate and understand future trends.
