Malaysian Reservations on CEDAW

July 23, 2010

Pakatan Rakyat belum mempunyai respon terhadap perkembangan terkini CEDAW.

Keseluruhan informasi mengenai CEDAW boleh didadpati di:

Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women


Original reservations by Malaysia upon ratification in 1995

[5 July 1995]

Articles 2(f), 5 (a), 7 (b), 9(1), (2), and 16(1) (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) and (g), (h) and 16(2) of the Convention.

Modifications and partial withdrawals in 1998

Articles 2(f), 9(1), 7(b), 16(1)(b), (d), (e) and (h).

Announcement made regarding withdrawal by the government  in 2010

Articles 5(a), 7(b) and 16(2).

Please note that an announcement to withdraw reservations does not amount to a withdrawal until the an instrument of withdrawal is deposited with the secretary general of the UN.  We still do not see that  this has  been done.

If the above reservations are in fact withdrawn the remaining reservations are as follows:

Articles 9(2), 16(1)(a), (c), (f), (g).

These are in the area of nationality and marriage and family relations.
