EGC 2020: Ensuring Women’s Rights in Post-Crisis Reconstruction Efforts and Constitutions: Strategies from the Local to the Transnational

Revolutions and political upheavals offer important opportunities for women’s rights groups to make history by organizing collective actions in demand for gender-equitable laws and constitutions which affords women full citizenship and equality. Domestic women’s rights groups, however, are rarely alone in such struggles, and often form ties beyond their borders with transnational women’s movements to learn about other countries' experiences. This panel, composed of experts and practitioners in the area of post-conflict reconstruction and constitutional reform from the Middle East and Africa, will present a comparative analysis of some of the recent and on-going local and transnational strategies for ensuring greater respect for women’s political rights. 

Panelists: Aili Mari Tripp, Wangari Maathai Professor of Political Science and Gender and Women’s Studies, University of Wisconsin--Madison

Palwasha Kakar, Senior Program Officer, Religion and Inclusive Societies 

Hekma Yagoub, Human Rights Lawyer, Sudan and UK

I am finding it very cumbersome to register for these EGC events - you have to register separately for each event (and it was hard to find next Tuesday's event), you have to follow multiple sequential screens, you have to enter your name 3 separate times per registration. Why such complexity?

I think the professional meeting format is not even good for professional meetings, and so I found this pretty dull. There was nothing to tie the talks together, and the talks themselves were primarily descriptive. One of the panelists was clearly unprepared.

You're not going yet!
