This project envisions scaling up the domestic and regional programs to the international level. The goal is to bring the CEDAW, CRC, and CRPD treaty bodies together to examine the recommendations made at the domestic and regional levels to analyse the interconnectedness and cross-cutting nature of the treaties so that the treaty body recommendations can be informed by a bottom-up process.
