Join our upcoming webinar Towards the goal of social justice: Women’s empowerment and sustainable development (CSW 60). Register here.
When: 2 March 2016, 5 to 7 p.m. (EST)
With the launch of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the links between the status of women worldwide and the long-term propensity of societies were importantly strengthened. Women’s empowerment and sustainable development was also selected as the priority theme for the 60th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW60) that will take place in New York from 14 to 24 March 2016.
Despite the growing international focus on this issue, the current socio-economic arrangements failed to address the challenges of the contemporary world and specifically the rights and needs of women and other marginalised groups.
The webinar will focus on how human rights and security politics can shift the current economic paradigm towards the goal of social justice.
