Abstract

All ASEAN member States have ratified and acceded the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). As parties of both conventions, Malaysia and Indonesia should enforce specific mechanism and rules in line with CEDAW and CRC norms and standards. Yet, both countries ask reservation for several substantive and procedural matters on both conventions. This certainly restricts the enforcement on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women and the protection of the rights of children. This is in addition to the Islamic shariah implemented in Malaysia and some regions in Indonesia as well as stereotype of women and men regarding their role in economic, social, and political. This paper will essentially show some hindrances for both governments and therefore should take some steps to reduce the limitation. The analysis will be delivered by examining all reports given by both governments to UN Commission on Women and Children, as well as shadow reports from NGOs.
