NGO CSW/NY's Advocacy & Research Group (ARG) provides recommendations leading up to and during the CSW Outcome Document negotiations. The ARG researches the CSW priority theme and consults with our global community on their priorities for the theme to inform their recommendations for Member States to include in the UN CSW Zero Draft and ultimately the CSW Outcome Document.
There are a myriad of ways for civil society to participate in the NGO CSW Forum and UN CSW. It is a great space for networking, sharing your organization’s work, and learning about gender equality issues and actions. However, it’s also a great place for advocacy within the UN and with Member States. While many NGO CSW Forum and UN CSW participants are seasoned experts in advocating in this space, there are new feminists and advocates coming into the NGO CSW Forum and CSW space every day!
NGO CSW/NY recognizes that the United Nations system can be overwhelming and newcomers may not know where to start, so we’ve created this Advocacy Toolkit to use as a starting point.
