FORO: Los Movimientos Sociales en la Cumbre Iberoamericana de Presidentes.

INVITACIÓN

FORO INTERACTIVO:

LOS MOVIMIENTOS SOCIALES EN LA CUMBRE IBEROAMERICANA DE PRESIDENTES

8 al 14 de noviembre de 2007

El Capítulo Latinoamericano de la Red Internacional de Género y Comercio, con el apoyo de UNIFEM y OXFAM, tienen el agrado de invitarlos/as a participar del Foro Interactivo que realizaremos en oportunidad de la Cumbre Iberoamericana de Presidentes, a realizarse en Santiago, Chile, del 8 al 10 de noviembre. El Foro interactivo forma parte del Programa de Formación en Género y Comercio de LAGTN.

La XVII Cumbre a desarrollarse del 10 al 12 de Noviembre en Chile llevará como lema “Cohesión social y políticas sociales para alcanzar sociedades más inclusivas en Iberoamérica”. En este sentido, los gobiernos se proponen mantener un espacio de intercambio sobre la manera en que los diferentes Estados iberoamericanos conciben su política de cohesión social y avanzan en su concreción.

En forma paralela, las organizaciones sociales de la Región se reunirán en la Cumbre por la Amistad e Integración de los Pueblos Iberoamericanos (7-10 de Noviembre) que se plantea como una instancia de reflexión, discusión y diálogo de los actores sociales y políticos del Continente y Europa, a través de las representaciones de España y Portugal.

En este marco proponemos un intercambio para difundir información y analizar conjuntamente qué acontece en la cumbre: qué intereses están en juego; cuál es la relación entre la oficial y la de los pueblos; cuáles son los avances y retrocesos en términos de equidad social y género en la región, y compartir impresiones y experiencias. La participación en el foro requiere la lectura de algunos documentos breves.

El Foro Interactivo está abierto –previa inscripción- a todas las mujeres y varones que tengan interés con las temáticas que se tratarán en las Cumbres y que pertenezcan a alguna organización o movimiento social de Iberoamérica. También es importante contar con acceso a una PC con conexión a internet.

Tanto la inscripción como la participación en el Foro se realiza a través de nuestro sitio web: www.generoycomercio.org

Ante cualquier duda o pregunta pueden escribirnos a: seminariogyc@gmail.com

L@s esperamos!!

Consejo de Seguridad y la Mujer en Conflictos Armados.

Consejo de Seguridad urge a cumplir resolución para proteger a la mujer en conflictos armados
Centro de Noticias ONU/Patagonia Ciber Fem


23 de octubre, 2007  El Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU debatió hoy cómo acelerar la implementación de una resolución adoptada hace siete años, que pide, entre otras cosas, una mayor participación de la mujer en los niveles de toma de decisiones, y urge a que se las proteja de abusos, sobre todo en los conflictos armados.
Si bien los participantes opinaron que se han producido avances hacia esos objetivos, reconocieron que hay aspectos que se han agravado.

El Secretario General, Ban Ki-moon, señaló que en algunos países que han salido de conflictos armados la violencia contra las mujeres ha adquirido proporciones pandémicas.

“Juntos, debemos fortalecer nuestra respuesta colectiva e individual. Esto es esencial si queremos revertir el daño causado por el conflicto y construir sociedades más incluyentes, responsables y unidas, apuntaladas por instituciones democráticas viables”, declaró Ban.

El embajador de Panamá, Ricardo Alberto Arias, sostuvo que el aumento de la violencia sexual como arma de guerra contra la mujer, ha llegado al límite de la barbarie en algunas partes del mundo.

“Para poner fin al ciclo de violencia contra las mujeres que se genera tanto en tiempos de paz como en tiempos de guerra, es necesario promover, entre otras cosas, su participación activa en todos los aspectos de la vida pública, socioeconómica y cultural”, sostuvo Arias.

Por su parte, el represente permanente de España, Juan Antonio Yánez-Barnuevo, advirtió que la comunidad internacional avanza lentamente a la hora de asegurar una mayor participación de las mujeres en los procesos de paz y su protección en los conflictos.

“Nos preocupan particularmente las graves violaciones del derecho internacional, incluido el derecho humanitario y de los derechos humanos, que siguen cometiéndose contra mujeres y niñas, su explotación sexual y los abusos que sufren en situaciones de conflicto armado”, recalcó.

El diplomático español señaló que su país ha duplicado desde 2004 la ayuda oficial al desarrollo destinada a cuestiones de género, porque entiende la construcción de la paz como un proceso amplio, en el que el desarrollo es fundamental.

Dear Member,

Welcome to your newsletter from the Gender and Development dgCommunity of the Development Gateway.

Anuradha Bhattacharjee
Content Coordinator

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Women Deliver Conference, October 18 – 20, 2007.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The landmark Women Deliver conference brought some of the United Nations' most high-powered leaders to London in October to further the Millennium Development Goals of curbing preventable pregnancy-related deaths of mothers and newborns. Honorary co-chairs of London's ExCel Centre conference 18-20 October are Dr. Asha-Rose Migiro of Tanzania, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations; and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson, now president of Realizing Rights. Featured speakers include: Thoraya Obaid, UN Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund; Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organisation; Assane Diop, Executive Director of the International Labour Organization; Dr. Peter Piot, UN Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of UNAIDS; and Dr. Nafis Sadik of Pakistan, Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General for HIV/AIDS.

These powerful leaders will be among more than 1,500 world decision-makers and delegates from 75 countries expected at the global conference, which will focus on strengthening health systems and creating political will to save the lives and improve the health of women, mothers and newborn babies around the world.
MDGs 4 and 5 call for reducing child mortality and improving maternal health by 2015. At the moment, ten million women die in every generation from pregnancy-related causes that are mostly preventable, and four million newborns also die needlessly every year. Twenty years of research and experience have demonstrated proven ways to save most of these lives, but maternal and newborn health still receives inadequate attention and funding. Conference speakers will highlight the theme: Invest in Women, It Pays. Workshops will demonstrate the need for government and donor investment in key areas that will make pregnancy safer, reduce maternal deaths and enable women to reach their fullest potential.

The year 2007 is critical for advancing the health and rights of women. The Women Deliver Conference in London marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of the global Safe Motherhood Initiative. We now know how to save the lives of most of the mothers and infants who die needlessly worldwide in pregnancy and childbirth. However, the overall number of women (about 500,000 per year) and newborns who die in this way (about four million) has not dropped significantly. This is in large part due to lack of political will. Maternal and newborn health still receives inadequate attention and funding. At the Women Deliver Conference, research and experience shared among the 2,000 participants has demonstrated the critical connection between women's health and rights and sound economies, healthy families and strong communities. The theme for the Conference: "Invest in women—it pays." This theme captures a simple truth: When a society spends money and other resources to improve the lives of women, children and families, the benefits rebound through that entire society - Education levels increase; Economies grow; Political participation widens.

The key lesson is that women are central to the economic, social, and political health of nations. Since the early 1990s, studies by the United Nations, the World Bank, and others have demonstrated the value of investing in interventions that improve the health of women, including maternal health.

3. NEW! DISCUSSION: Political will and leadership are fundamental to improving women's access to health services
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Political will and leadership are fundamental to improving women's access to health services. Efforts to increase women's access to health services have fallen short in many developing countries because of underlying economic, political, social and cultural constraints. Parliamentarians are well-placed to promote gender sensitive health policies, whether through legislative mandates, acting as public role models and spokespersons for gender equality and public openness about HIV and AIDS, or supporting development of a sustainable national health infrastructure. What is the situation in your country? Please share your views with the community.

Thank you.

4. NEW! Resource of Interest: IRENE Network
---------------------------------------------------------------------

IRENE has been stimulating and facilitating the exchange of information on labour issues since 1981 and has contacts, resources and a European programme of work which covers current international labour issues. IRENE is an international network on development education working towards international labour issues being taken up by NGOs and trade unions in their mainstream education and campaign programmes. IRENE is set up to strengthen international workers solidarity. By organising international seminars and workshops it gives attention to new areas of work and provides new inputs in existing work. IRENEs activities stimulate the exchange between organisations in the South and the North and within Europe (also Eastern Europe). The core question of IRENEs work is: How are workers (women and men), in different regions in the world, are affected by international restructuring in the industrial and services sector. The Internatinal Programme from 2007 onwards - Corporate Social Responsibility - corporate accountability and international regulatory frameworks for transnational corporations. IRENE is member of OECD Watch and coordinator of the capacity building programme of OECD Watch. IRENE is member of the steering group of ECCJ, the European Coalition for Corporate Justice. Workers' rights, workers' ability to organise and to gain power over their lives are at the core of the work on workers in the informal economy. In IRENE there is a strong agreement to elaborate on all issues specifically on women workers.
