The Network of Scholars on Gender, Sexuality and the Law (ALAS), together with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, the Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law and the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Pretoria, have invited activists, practitioners, scholars, and judges interested in gender equality and gender-based violence to participate in the upcoming conference titled, Global Transformation towards Gender Equality and Agenda 2030: A conversation about innovative approaches to break the cycle of violence against women.
The two-day conference will be a global forum for dialogue between individuals from academia, government, the justice sector, and civil society. The conference aims to make a substantive contribution towards the implementation of the gender equality component of the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development; by identifying approaches that can help deliver change. The conference will explore solutions broadly but will pay special attention to the intersection between violence against women and reproduction and maternal health.
The conference is a closed event, and organizers are no longer accepting abstracts. Please note that panelists are responsible for their own travel expenses. The conference will be in English. Papers are welcome, but not required. Papers may be submitted for publication to the Human Rights Brief at American University Washington College of Law.
