Joint NGO Report, for the Malaysian Government’s Review by the CEDAW Committee, at the 88th CEDAW Session in May 2024

Malaysia ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1995, committing to uphold gender equality and women’s rights. As a signatory, Malaysia undergoes a review by the United Nations every four years to assess its compliance with CEDAW.

Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) play a crucial role in this review process by submitting independent reports on the government’s progress and areas needing improvement. The 2024 Malaysian NGO Shadow Report offers an independent analysis of Malaysia’s compliance by highlighting gaps in the government’s efforts and providing critical recommendations for improvement. This shadow report ensures the voices of civil society are heard, promoting transparency and accountability in advancing women’s rights in Malaysia.
