CSW60, The 60th Session, Commission on the Status of Women 2016


The sixtieth session of the Commission on the Status of Women Sixtieth Session (CSW60) will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 14 to 24 March 2016.

This year, it has been decided to hold the Commission later than usual in response to many women wanting to attend International Women’s Day in their own country.

Another departure from the norm by ending a day early, on the Thursday due to the Friday being the traditional celebration of Good Friday.

The Priority theme for CSW60: “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development”
The Review theme: The elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls (agreed conclusions from the fifty-seventh session)
The Emerging Issue is yet to be determined

Organisation of the session will become available in late December. Other Documentation and NGO Statements will become available closer to the session
