Examining the Treatment of Gender, Inequality and Human Rights within Draft Sustainable Development Goals

An expert roundtable hosted by the SDSN Thematic Group on Social Inclusion

Organized by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN)

Venue: Middlesex University, The Burroughs, London, NW4 4BT

Tuesday 15th July at 5.30pm

The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), in partnership with Middlesex University, is delighted to host an expert roundtable, examining the treatment of gender, inequality and human rights within the Open Working Group on SDGs’ (OWG) Draft Goals and Targets. The moderated discussion will cover a range of questions including; the extent to which gender discrimination and other forms of group-based inequality are prioritized within the Goals; whether the priorities identified reflect the outcomes of the UN thematic consultation on inequality; and whether priorities are evidence-based. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment upon potential indicators, developed by the SDSN. The discussion will conclude by considering key influencing opportunities, following the conclusion of the OWG in late July, 2014.
