Multi-Sectoral Approach to Women's Rights in Africa

Publication Date: 
June, 2011

In response to the growing need for implementation tools, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women has released a detailed manual on promoting women’s rights. The release comes at a critical time after many governments have ratified human rights treaties but have yet to fully adopt the commitments in national law.

The publication, Multi-Sectoral Approach to Women’s Rights in Africa, utilizes a multi-lateral approach across many government departments. By employing an inter-ministerial coordination, nations are able to better synchronize between regional international bodies, donors, United Nations, civil society, and local organizations and unions. This inter-disciplinary approach ensures the widespread implementation of women’s rights in national law and policy.
