GENDER, DISPLACEMENT, AND VIOLENCE:
70 YEARS OF THE REFUGEE CONVENTION UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN
MARCH 16, 2021 / 10AM-12PM EDT
VIRTUAL / NGO CSW PLATFORM
At the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Refugee Convention, gender justice beyond borders remains a goal yet to be achieved. Experiences of women*, girl, LGBTQIA+ and gender diverse migrants - especially in the context of violence - continue to be sidelined in international protection frameworks.
The objectives of the event are to assess progress made in providing gendered protection frameworks and to charter a way forward that is responsive to violence-induced displacement and migration.
