UNRISD Research Coordinator, Shahra Razavi, and Research Analyst, Silke Staab, will speak at the “Bridging the divide between Women’s and Children’s Human Rights” seminar 3-4 December 2009 in London.

Razavi and Staab will present the results of the UNRISD Care project at the seminar.

The event is hosted by the Institute for the Study of the Americas at the University of London, School of Advanced Study. The seminar features speakers and participants from both advocacy and scholarly communities to debate and discuss the principles and practices in women’s and children’s rights that have evolved over recent years to the present.

Among the issues to be discussed are the principles of equality and difference, autonomy and responsibility, the problem of instrumental advocacy, targeted and universal welfare systems, models of household responsibility, issues of care and violence, and women’s and children’s perspectives on migration.
