Gender Equality International Workshop
Theme of the workshop: Accountability and evaluation in the era of international projects and discourses in favor of gender equality
Description : More and more organizations are placing gender equality at the heart of their international organizational projects and discourses. Multilateral spaces for negotiation and cooperation have also been invested in the issue, leading to the adoption of international agreements and a common vocabulary articulated around Sustainable Development Goal No. 5, for example, but also the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of violence and Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
However, as gender becomes a variable increasingly taken into account, particularly in the activities led by non-governmental and international organizations, what does a "feminist project" imply? How can we ensure that the values promoted are actually translated into initiatives on the ground? In other words, how can we be sure that projects in favor of gender equality are not only in their description, but also in each stage of their implementation?
This workshop will be accessible simultaneously in French and English thanks to our team of interpreters.
