About the Seminar

The workshop was convened to reflect critically on existing and potential areas of research on gender issues, catalyze the work of other UN organizations, and explore possibilities for new collaborative work. The meeting is the first part of a consultative process that will enable UN Women to fulfil its coordination and support role within the United Nations System. The meeting brought together approximately 30 participants, including researchers from within the UN system, those in charge of gender issues from UN system, those in charge of gender issues from different UN agencies as well as a selected group of researchers from outside the UN system.
