Alternative Report on the Implementation of the UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) - Sri Lanka “Women and Armed Conflict”. European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (2010)

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)

Gender-based violence against women has gained recognition under International law, in the jurisdictions of international courts and tribunals, in the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) itself and under the Security Council‟s effort to broaden their approaches to peace and security. But an intertwined approach is still lacking and a concerted and coherent response from the UN system is needed. CEDAW obliges State parties to provide information on the implementation of these resolu-tions and to ensure that these rights are realized by setting up adequate responses to women‟s needs and protection. In the light of SCR 1820, CEDAW and the approach that sexualized violence in conflicts is foreseeable, we argue that Sri Lanka violated several Articles of CEDAW.
