Workshop: Gender, Health & Sustainable Development

May 7, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm










Looking forward to the International Day of Action for Women’s Health this workshop celebrates past successes and reflects on the current challenges to improve women’s health. The workshop also welcomes submission of papers and digital artwork that addresses: “How can international human rights law be used to challenge and improve the SDGs for gender equality and health to truly ‘leave no one behind’ on the path to sustainable development? This is the fourth workshop of the “International Law for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)” Workshop Series organized by the University of Groningen’s Department of Transboundary Legal Studies at the Faculty of Law. The Centre for Gender Studies and Global Health Law Groningen Research Centre are co-organisers.

The workshop includes a keynote lecture which will be given by Prof. Wendy Harcourt, Professor of Gender, Diversity, and Sustainable Development at the International Social Institute in the Hague. During this lecture, she will reflect on transnational feminist activism in global public health campaigns looking at some contested arenas in global body politics: female genital mutilation, menstrual activism, sexual rights through the lens of gender, heteronormativity, cultural difference.

The aim of the workshop series is to explore the role and relevance of international law to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. For more information on the workshop series, visit: www.rug.nl/law/il4sdgs.
