1. There are nine core international human rights treaties,1 of which Chad is a party to eight.2 This includes the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). In line with the Conventions’ protections, this Stakeholder Report focuses upon (a) female genital mutilation and (b) domestic abuse.
2. In this submission, we make recommendations to the Government of Chad on these key issues, implementation of which would see the State move towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 5 which aims for “gender equality and empowering all women and girls”.
3. We encourage Chad to commit to improving its human rights protection and promotion by engaging meaningfully with the fourth cycle of the UPR in 2024. This includes giving full and practical consideration to all recommendations made by Member States, effectively implementing the recommendations Chad accepts, and actively engaging with civil society throughout the process.
