Flipping the Post-2015 Development Discourse: Promoting Accountability for Women & Migrant Human Rights and Social Protections
Thursday, 13 March, 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.,Church Center for the United Nations, 2nd floor
Women & Global Migration Working Group, Global Fund for Women,International Trade Union Confederation, Migrant Forum Asia, Migrant Rights International, National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Siglo XXIII, United Methodist Women, World YWCA, YWCA-Canada
The focus of this interactive session is on new Sustainable Development Goals. Too little attention is paid to
the powerful actors that intentionally and systematically UNDER-develop communities, regions and nations in both North and South. Social Protections including healthcare, education and income security are human rights guaranteed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights yet denied to millions, as resources are redirected towards elites. They should be at the core of the development agenda. Lack of these rights is a major reason women migrate, yet when they arrive in new countries they often are unable to access these services. This interactive session will identify the policies and actors that block the delivery of economic and social human rights and examine strategies to hold state and non-state actors accountable.
