Re-strengthening global sisterhood - Emerging women’s issues for a new global agenda

After meetings in Boston and Paris, this year it is the third time that experts from Europe and North-America meet for the promotion of equal rights for women and men. This event is run with the support of the Fondation Jean Jaurès and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

These meetings have provided a unique opportunity for discussion amongst European and North-American experts, and facilitated the development of new initiatives for promoting gender equality, useful both for academics and policy-makers.



The S&D Group conference on "A NEW STRATEGY FOR AFGHANISTAN" aimed to follow up on the report adopted by the European Parliament in December 2010 and to discuss ways of working together for a stable and prosperous Afghanistan.

The positive atmosphere of this event, organised with the participation of key regional and international figures, sent an important political message.
