The United Nations (UN) Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) has recently announced that it will start working on the development and adoption of a new General Recommendation on the ‘Equal and inclusive representation of women in decision-making systems’.
Following the half-day general discussion that the Committee organizes on 22 February 2023, this event – co-organized with GQUAL, the University of Bern, the Swiss National Science Foundation and the World Trade Institute – intends to highlight the importance of the process initiated by the Committee with a broad audience of stakeholders and contribute to the discussion by engaging experts on a dynamic conversation addressing key issues related to the equal and inclusive representation of women in decision-making systems.
