Where is the trump card?

Overcoming the critical barriers to gender equality in development

Diplomatische Akademie Wien
Favoritenstraße 15a, 1040 Wien


Despite almost four decades of sustained research, advocacy and activism, progress in achieving gender equality in development has been inconsistent and woefully inadequate. Are there critical barriers to making progress, and what are they? The talk will identify strengths and weaknesses of current approaches. It will draw on current debates triggered by the processes towards a post 2015 development agenda to reflect on how we can protect, promote and fulfill the human rights of girls and women.
