CEDAW Timeline Nepal 2018

In March 2018, CEDAW published its List of Issues (LOI) for Nepal (PDF) with questions to the Nepali Government, including a question on intersex (para 8 (d)):

Stereotypes and harmful practices

[...]
8.   The report indicates that the State party, in collaboration with civil society organisations, is implementing campaigns to address a number of harmful practices such as forced and early marriages and accusations of witchcraft (boxi) (para. 27). [...] Please also provide information on [...] (d) measures being taken to address forced inter-sex genital mutilation and discrimination against inter-sex persons, including reported cases of abuse, infanticide and forced marriage.

This marks the first time that any UN Committee explicitly addressed infanticide and forced marriage of intersex persons!
 
The Government has now to submit written answers to the questions in the LOI. Thereafter, Nepal will be examined at the 71th CEDAW session in Geneva (22 October – 09 November 2018), during 2 meetings with oral questions by the Committee and replies by the Nepali delegation, to be transmitted LIVE on webtv.un.org.
