by: Lucid. Berlin • 26
W’sHR App is a pioneering endeavor by Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights/ Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. The App is a practical tool for easy access to relevant international legal instruments as well as agreed language contained in 321 UN documents on women’s human rights adopted by UN bodies. In addition, it also comprises 27 regional legal basis documents. This new innovative tool serves stakeholders as a basis for strong argumentation, allows for more coherent and efficient negotiation processes as well as to safeguard negotiated achievements. This tool also helps to build capacity and make further progress in the field of women’s human rights and gender equality.
