NEW Call for Registration: SECOND E-learning Session on Macroeconomics and Human Rights

Why MES with Human Rights?: Rethinking Macroeconomic Strategies from a Human Rights Perspective

A two part series webinar on macroeconomics and its impact on human rights

Last week, we held the first session on Fiscal Policy and State Obligation. If you are interested in attending the second session, please fill in the registration form BELOW.

Description:

What is macroeconomic policy? What are examples of how macroeconomic policies shape the realities of women’s lives?Understanding the overall impact of macroeconomic policies on human rights can be an effective tool in feminist activism. Participants will gain foundations to macroeconomics and explore the linkages between macroeconomic policies and human rights.

This webinar is open to activists working in the areas of women’s rights, economic and social justice, and the promotion of economic and social rights for all. Additionally, the webinar is directed at providing activists, academics, individuals, and civil society organizations with the skills and knowledge to 1) hold their governments accountable to human rights obligations, 2) influence economic policy, and 3) foster new feminist human rights approaches to macroeconomic policy making. The training will cover several topics, including linkages between the human rights framework, gender equality and the economy, macroeconomics, and global economic trends and governance.

This is a two part webinar series: the first part will focus on fiscal policy and state obligations while the second section is on monetary policy and strategies for transforming macroeconomic policies.

    So sad to see the registration is already closed. Will you be sharing the materials from the seminars or holding another one? I would love to learn how to use economic arguments to make a case for prioritizing human rights and women’s rights, specifically. Thanks for creating such forums!
