A functional commission of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), it was established by Council resolution 11(II) of 21 June 1946. The CSW is instrumental in promoting women’s rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women. In 1996, ECOSOC in resolution 1996/6 expanded the Commission’s mandate and decided that it should take a leading role in monitoring and reviewing progress and problems in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and in mainstreaming a gender perspective in UN activities. During the Commission’s annual two-week session, representatives of UN Member States, civil society organizations and UN entities gather at UN headquarters in New York. They discuss progress and gaps in the implementation of the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the key global policy document on gender equality, and the 23rd special session of the General Assembly held in 2000 (Beijing+5), as well as emerging issues that affect gender equality and the empowerment of women. Member States agree on further actions to accelerate progress and promote women’s enjoyment of their rights in political, economic and social fields. The outcomes and recommendations of each session are forwarded to ECOSOC for follow-up.

Agenda:"Addressing the issue of gender gap in developing nations".

The All India Political Parties Meet - AIPPM

The All India Political Parties Meet is a a fictional committee of prominent representatives from around the country which assembles to discuss, debate and deliberate upon some of the greatest issues that the country faces today. Unlike the Lok Sabha or other Parliamentary bodies, AIPPM is not a binding committee and hence the resolutions passed here cannot be perceived in the form of laws or schemes. The resolutions passed might simply serve a directive for proceedings in the parliamentary bodies. Then one might ask how is such a committee which has no binding power be effective? Well, our legislature might be a highly efficient system no doubt, but not all issues cannot be comprehensively discussed in the legislative units like the Lok Sabha. Some issues are just too broad and critical to be efficiently addressed in the often hectic Lok Sabha agendas. So, a committee such as AIPPM provides the representatives with a platform to address one such particular issue at a time, comprehensively and efficiently, find probable solutions and follow them up in the legislative bodies. But more importantly, in this committee for once the representatives can choose to come out of their cocoon of party obligations and liberally deliberate upon the issue in hand with solely the nation's benefit in mind. There are no blocs in this committee and all delegates present are in their capacity as representatives only. The AIPPM is indeed a very exciting committee and you can take it as an opportunity to make a difference to your nation.

Agenda:"Revisiting the aspects of foreign policy post the Nuclear Suppliers groups - NSG's vote and BRITAIN'S exit from European Union ".
