Preparatory Events for EU-CELAC-Summit : Dialogue on gender equality


Last week, in Buenos Aires (Argentina), was held the 4th activity of the EU-CELAC dialogue on gender equality.

This event took place in the preparation of the forthcoming EU-Latin America and Caribbean Community of States (CELAC) Summit (San Salvador - 26&27th October).

The EU-CELAC gender dialogue was formally launched in Buenos Aires in November 2013 during a 2-day workshop on feminicide. The second dialogue was hold in March 2014 at the margin of the 558th session of the CSW at the United Nations on challenges and results of the MDG for girls and women. Finally, in March 2016, too place the third activity of the dialogue in Brussels on women economic empowerment.

The objective of this 4th event is to creat a place for exchanging experiences in order to contribute to the bi-regional debate and cooperation in the topic and to articulate education programs and training for experts in the fight against gender violence.

B&S Europe provided logistic support to the European Commisson for the organisation of that event.
