Project Description

March 2018

This submission for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Nigeria was made by the CEDAW Coalition on Women, Peace and Security, which is a coalition of eight registered Nigerian NGOs, including WILPF Nigeria. 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.
