Governmental reports on the implementation of the Platform
If one looks at the governmental reports of countries of the former Soviet Union, he/she
can almost certainly conclude that these governments are doing all they can and even more to
ensure the implementation of the Platform. For example, many governmental reports provide a
general overview of the legal rights of women in the countries. However, they do not discuss the
implementation of the rights in specific terms. Knowing that legal recognition of the rights can
be an achievement by itself, the states look quite good among other governmental actors. They
do not make any attempt to highlight a problem of the implementation of the Platform de facto.
Here are only some examples of general, vague statements that can be found in the
governmental reports. The governmental report from Uzbekistan (2000) on the implementation
of the Platform reads rather positively, “The President and the Government of the country
implement all the possible measures for women to take more active part in the decision-making
processes in both political and economic life” (p. 1). The report proudly states that the special
national concept was worked out which became “the program document on providing the
juridical and social guarantees to the women on the Republic of Uzbekistan” (p.1).
The governmental report of Russian Federation (2000) also cites the legal guarantee of
equal access of women and men and provides vague statements, such as, the government
promises “to ensure full implementation of the recommendations contained in the United Nations
Convention on the elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women…” (p. 3).
