Strengthening the Capacity of the Thai Judiciary to Protect Survivors of Domestic Violence:Justice for Society’s “Little Dots”

This study concluded that the promotion of gender equality and women’s access to justice required not only the enactment of new laws that were compliant with international standards such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) but that these laws should be implemented by a gender-sensitive administration of justice. This indeed is one of the State obligations under CEDAW which calls on states to “take all appropriate measures, including legislation, to modify or abolish existing laws, regulations, customs and practices which constitute discrimination against women”.
