UN CSW: Deadline For Submitting the Communications.
August 1st is the deadline for submitting the communications to the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) containing information related to alleged violations of human rights that affect the status of women in any country in the world. The communications (complaints/appeals/petitions) may be submitted by any individual, non-governmental organization, group or network. The Commission does not take decisions on the merit of communication and, therefore, does not provide a remedy for the redress of individual grievances. However, it does inform the governments about the complaints and invites them to submit replies. Therefore, applying the procedure might be an useful part of advocacy and lobbying strategy.
