Seeking Accountability and Demanding Change: A Report on Women's Human Rights Violations in Syria Before and During the Conflict (July 2014)

The report was compiled by MADRE and the International Women's Human Rights clinic at the CUNY Law School in consultation and collaboration with Syrian Women’s organizations and activists. The report supplements the information set forth in the Second periodic report submitted by the Syrian Arab Republic to the Committee for its review of Syria during the 58th Session held in July 2014. The report examined the Syrian Arab Republic’s compliance with its obligations under the CEDAW, and documented violations of several articles of the Convention regarding women, girls, and children in the country. The report also includes a series of recommendations for the government of Syria on concrete measures the State can take to fully uphold and protect the rights of these individuals.
