PSI is an accredited organisation for the UN Commission on the Status of Women and will be participating with a delegation of 20 people from our affiliated unions. Although a large part of our activities will take place during the first week, we are seeking to ensure representation throughout the entire UNCSW60, with delegates attending the entire event and others attending only part of it.
The priority theme for UNCSW60 will be: “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development”. In preparation for the 60th session, UN Women will convene an expert group meeting (EGM) on this theme, from 1 to 4 November 2015, in New York. The session will also review the theme of the elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls, basing the discussion on the agreed conclusions from the 57th session.
The Global Unions have jointly prepared and submitted a Statement to the UNCSW60: Organising for Women’s Social and Economic Empowerment by 2030
