Gender-based discrimination is prohibited at Article 35 of the emirate’s constitution.[1]Qatar ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination Against Women in 2009, but with reservations to Article 2 (equality between men and women); Article 9 (right to nationality); Article 15 (equality before the law); Article 16 (equality in marriage, family relations, divorce, guardianship of children).[2]These reservations were made on the basis that the articles were inconsistent with the constitution and with Shari’a law.[3] Qatar will report to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW Committee) for the first time in 2014.[4]
