Putting Our Collective Experience to Work

WHO WE ARE

The CEDAW People's Tribunal (CPT) is a grassroots organisation which will deliver an inquisitorial tribunal hearing to examine the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women - known as CEDAW.

 

This year, the tribunal will examine the failure to integrate CEDAW into domestic legislation; decide whether those delays are legitimate or not; and make necessary recommendations as to how the Convention can be given full effect in the UK, advancing women in all aspects of society and recognising historic inequalities.

It will facilitate the correlation of evidence into a Report which -  importantly - is in the ownership of civil society.

A people's tribunal is extremely powerful because it enables civil society and, in particular, those who may not have an arena in any other form, to ensure that their voices are heard.

The tribunal works outside of government processes, but in conjunction with any other hearing, tribunal or process that may be taking place, to get to justice and truth.

The CPT is made up of an Independent Panel of Judges, Legal Consultant, Queen's Counsels, Barristers, Advocacy Group, Steering Committee and Legal Assistants:  all can be viewed here CEDAWpt.com

Nazir Afzal OBE QC, former Chief Prosecutor, has been instructed as Legal Consultant to the People’s Tribunal on an ad hoc, pro bono basis

 

The CPT is delighted to welcome on board from Garden Court Chambers barristers Sonali Naik QC, Amanda Weston QC, Nicola Braganza, Grace Brown, Louise Hooper and Maria Moodie: all represent the CPT on a pro bono basis.

The CPT is delighted to announce that Smita Bajaria, Solicitor, will receive instructions from CPT, the Client, and, in turn, instruct Garden Court Chambers on behalf of it.

The eminent John Cooper QC's treasured pro bono work with the CPT, to date, was completed, last month. John remains an enthusiastic supporter and wishes CPT success and those sentiments are wholeheartedly reciprocated.

Every woman and girl born in the UK should be able to realise, as of right, her true potential.

There is no reason why CEDAW cannot be transposed into domestic law and the delay in doing so is nothing short of unconscionable.

OUR GOALS

• A published Report out of the tribunal hearing signed-off by the Independent Panel of Judges

 

• Instructions for a Women's Bill of Rights

 

• A film of the journey

• Roadshow e-Drop-Ins

 

The CEDAW Peoples Tribunal will leave a lasting legacy by providing a body of evidence for individuals, women's campaign groups and politicians to hold governments to account.

This will lead to changes in laws and the creation of new laws to bring about a Women’s Bill of Rights and substantive, transformative equality for all women and girls. -  Founder and Campaign Director Joanne Welch
