Current UN-INSTRAW work/activities

 

Workshop on Gender and Mine Action Training Kit

UN-INSTRAW participated in the Workshop organized by the Swiss Campaign to Ban Landmines held on 15 January 2008, Geneva , Switzerland . The objective of the workshop was to obtain inputs from the participants for the preparation of a training kit on gender and mine action which will help in developing projects and programmes on this issue. UN-INSTRAW’s presentation focused on how to collect data disaggregated by age and sex, how to involve local stakeholder and women's organizations, and how to measure the success of Mine Action Programmes from a gender perspective. The objective is to make such programmes more comprehensive and responsive to the different needs of men, women, boys and girls affected by land mines.  As many as 78 nations are affected by landmines while 85 are affected by explosive remnants of war. Today, there are nearly 500,000 landmine survivors, of whom three quarters are civilians.

 

First Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations

The Director of UN-INSTRAW, Ms Carmen Moreno, attended the First Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations held on 15-17 January 2008 in Madrid , Spain .  The Forum gathered over 300 representatives of international regional organizations, donor agencies, diplomats, media leaders, academia, grassroots and civil society with the objective of presenting twelve strategic points for the promotion of collaboration between East and West through the creation of joint programmes and projects. Amongst the measures proposed at the Forum are: involving foundations and private enterprises in making important economic contributions to the information and communications fields, the creation of a Solidarity Fund that motivates more employment for the youth, the creation of a mechanism whereby global experts will assist the media in dealing with important transcultural crises and the promotion of educational programmes.  In 2009, the Forum will meet again in Turkey .

UN-INSTRAW has continued pursuing activities that fall under the Gender, Migration and Remittances Programme, including the following:

1) Joint project with the Dominican NGO “TU  MUJER” on Remittances and Co-development being implemented in the eastern part of the city of Santo Domingo, whereby UN-INSTRAW provides support in mainstreaming the gender perspective within the project and in joint activities for generating a national political dialogue on the positive impact of migration for gender-sensitive development. Within the framework of this agreement, the Institute presented a paper on “Migration and Development:  Limitations from a gender perspective” at a national seminar on “Remittances and Development held in Santiago de los Caballeros on 4 December 2007;

2)  Joint agreement with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) to implement the project “Enhancing the Gender-Sensitive Impact of Remittances for Rural Development”. The Institute’s role in this project is to: a) determine the areas of intervention in order to positively link migration/remittances and rural development; and b) establish a common frame of supervision and follow-up for all intervention projects that are financed by IFAD within this framework.

3) The Institute has signed an agreement with ALMA MATER, a network which gathers 14 public universities from the Coffee-growing Region in Colombia with the objective of including the gender perspective in the Masters Degree Programme on International Migrations, and participating in teaching a module within the Programme, as well as carrying out collaborative research.

4) UN-INSTRAW has recently published on its website four working papers on the Institute’s theoretical framework, guiding its work during 2007: Feminization of migrations; Global care chains; Remittances;

International Human Rights Day

On the occasion of Human Rights Day, December 10th 2007, Louise Arbour, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, called on national actors, governments, civil society and human rights institutions to reaffirm their commitment to the values and principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  This Day marks the 60th Anniversary of the UN General Assembly's adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Over the years, a whole network of human rights instruments and mechanisms has been developed to ensure the primacy of human rights and to confront human rights violations wherever they occur.  In this framework, Ms Arbour referred to the theme of the year-long campaign launched by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon - “Dignity and Justice for All of Us” - and expressed her wish that during this period the human rights agenda would be widely endorsed by all United Nations Member States.  Read more
