The Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW)
Principles of equality, non-discrimination and state-obligation enshrined in CEDAW shape NEN’s programmatic approach.
In 2000 and again in 2007, NEN utilised CEDAW’s treaty body reporting mechanism (through Shadow reports) during India’s reporting periods to the CEDAW Committee. In this regard, NEN continues to monitor India’s implementation of the CEDAW Committee’s recommendations via the Concluding Observations. NEN also conducts training programmes for women’s organizations on the application of CEDAW. In addition, NEN disseminates information in local languages on CEDAW and any Concluding Observations.

The CEDAW Committee/OHCHR organised a day of general discussion for 18 July 2011 in New York, during CEDAW Committee's 49th Session. It was done as part of its processes towards drafting of a general recommendation to address the issues related to women's human rights in the situations of conflcit and post conflict. The Committee has also written a concept note which gives an idea of the scope and the Committee's thinking on these general recommendations. It is uploaded on the official CEDAW page at: http://www2.ohchr.org/english/bodies/cedaw/docs/GRConceptNote.pdf
