Tajikistan: Failure to protect women from domestic violence

Tajikistan: Failure to protect women from domestic violence
Tajikistan: Failure to protect women from domestic violence

On 1 October 2018 Tajikistani NGOs Najoti-Kudakon, Vash Vybor (Your Choice), Nota Bene and International Partnership for Human Rights sent a joint submission on domestic violence against women in Tajikistan to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). CEDAW will review Tajikistan’s compliance with commitments as a party to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women in Geneva on 31 October and issue recommendations to the country.

The submission highlights the positive steps taken by the authorities since the last review of Tajikistan by CEDAW in 2013, as well as pointing to protection gaps in legislation and practice which leave victims of domestic violence at risk and unsupported.

The joint NGO submission is based on ongoing monitoring by Najoti-Kudakon, Vash Vybor (Your Choice), Nota Bene, as well as IPHR field research conducted in 2016 and 2018.
