Women's Human Rights Education Institutes: CEDAW For Change - 1 Week Intensive Institute

Event Date: 
October 14, 2011 (All day) - October 28, 2011 (All day)

This one-week module is designed to cultivate a better understanding of the principles of non-discrimination and equality as enshrined in the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women and each State’s obligation to respect, protect and fulfill women’s human rights.

During the week we will learn through activities focused around identity and interconnectedness, the complex nature of discrimination, the impact of culture and religion on women’s rights, examine case studies that have come before the CEDAW committee and will explore ways in which CEDAW can be used to support local and national level activism.

Presented at:
The Centre for Women’s Studies in Education
Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

In Cooperation with:
Fundación Justicia y Género, Costa Rica and
International Women’s Rights Action Watch‐Asia Pacific, Malaysia

Directed by:
