Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with an analysis of 20 countries which incorporate to some extent Islamic laws and customs; the countries are analyzed indicating the articles which are reserved by each of them. Then the chapter analyzes the reactions of other States parties to the reservations entered by Muslim States. The principal task of the CEDAW Committee is the examination of reports submitted by States parties according to article 18 of the Convention. The Committee may also make suggestions based on the examination of reports and information received from States Parties. The very notion of reservations, instead of being just a means of preserving position of a State in the context of a particular treaty, becomes a way of adapting gradually a situation in a particular State to requirements of the treaty. This transformation from a static nature to dynamic process is particularly visible in the practice of modification of reservations.
