Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)
Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women in the Middle East.
There has been an uneven progress in promoting the rights of women throughout the Middle Eastern region. Women have been subjected to discrimination in several cases in the region and have been restricted access to basic life necessities. The legal status of women in the modern Middle East has been in transition since the Arab spring. With the current political instability in the Middle Eastern Countries, the number of women refugees and IDPs living in unsanitary, insecure conditions in Refugee Camps is extremely high. This makes them vulnerable to torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence. Although, there are feminist organizations in Middle Eastern countries, they tend to be small and lack significant input in the political process. Since obtaining their independence from Europe, most Middle Eastern governments have undertaken legal reforms directed at reducing the inequalities between men and women, however, only few of them have been successful in their implementation.
Discussing the Reproductive Rights of women with special emphasis on legislations on abortion and family planning.
Reproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the structure and planning of their family, and to have the information and means to do so. It also mean the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health. The right of all to make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence, according to the World Health Organization is also crucial. It includes Rights to legal and safe abortion, birth control, access to education and reproductive healthcare. UNFPA and WHO advocate for Reproductive Rights and its proper implementation.
Advice for new delegates ?
Being a new delegate can be an extremely unnerving experience. However, it doesn’t necessarily needs to be. The primary aim for every delegate should be to acquire knowledge and gain experience. There is a wide barter of knowledge that takes place in a Model U.N. conference. Grasping that knowledge should be of utmost importance. Try to research about every possible tangent of the agenda, try to explore new sides, and have courage to deliver all that you’ve learnt through your speeches. We, as Executive Board, would try to make this experience as memorable for you as possible. I hope to see you at the conference.
Chairperson - Commission on the Status of Women
Subjects: Humanities (English, Psychology, Sociology, History, Political Science)
It gives me the utmost pleasure to write in the capacity of the Chairperson of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. Indian Model UN has always been the most prestigious conference - one that provides all young diplomats with unparalleled knowledge about various global issues.
This stimulation of UN CSW will help us dive deep into the discussion of topics directly affecting the Status of Women all around the globe; It will help us analyse the gender norms and stereotypes that have been prevalent in our society and would help us sympathize with women who suffer a lot of difficulties.
I hope we can make this committee a cherishable experience for all the delegates and I hope we can contribute to the creation of global citizens that can help towards the creation of a better world.
I hope to see you at the conference!
Why INMUN ?
Indian Model United Nations is the prime platform for future leaders to polish their diplomacy skills. It provides an all-round experience, which would stick with both Executive Board members and delegates for the rest of their lives. With exceptional committees and agendas, INMUN strives to provide an enriching experience which is the best of the best and definitely something worth attending.
