Women, Peace and Security. Joint report for the UPR of Nigeria
This submission for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Nigeria was made by the CEDAW Coalition on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), which is a coalition of eight registered Nigerian NGOs, including WILPF Nigeria, that was established in 2017 with the aim to provide the CEDAW Committee with information about gaps in the implementation of the Convention with a specific reference to the Committee’s General Recommendation 30 and the WPS Agenda more broadly. This UPR submission draws from the Coalition’s report to the CEDAW Committee with some updated information. As many of the recommendations made by the Committee to Nigeria in 2017 are relevant to the Coalition’s concerns, they are highlighted throughout this UPR submission.
