Our international work


NIWEP is a body in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC). NIWEP can therefore make submissions to UN processes, of which CSW is the most important for gender equality. A key role for NIWEP is representing women in Northern Ireland within the CSW process. This includes making written statements and participating in the annual event either remotely or directly. NIWEP is also developing capacity building on CSW to strengthen capacity in Northern Ireland to participate in the process.
