OP CEDAW website announces partnership with Australian Human Rights Centre

The Optional Protocol to CEDAW website is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Australian Human Rights Centre (AHRCentre) at the University of New South Wales Faculty of Law to establish a student-driven research project. 


The AHRCentre’s interns – Teneisha Bhalla, Monique Dam, Sarah Dobinson, Antonia Ross, Emma Watt and Joshua Wood – will undertake research and summarise jurisprudence decided under the Optional Protocol.  Their important work will ensure that summaries of all of the CEDAW Committee’s decisions will soon be available on the website.

The students will be supervised by Andrew Byrnes, Andrea Durbach, Beth Goldblatt and Justine Nolan of the AHRCentre and the UNSW as well as Simone Cusack, Founding and Managing Editor of the Optional Protocol to CEDAW website.     

The case summaries will be uploaded to the website over the coming months.
