Commission on the Status of Women
The Arab Spring In 2010 has been one of the causations of one of the most discussed topics in this decade – women’s rights.
Now the topic has been taken up for discussion in the Commission on the Status of Women. It is a heavy debate and the delegates are full of considerable arguments. Currently, the commission is debating whether or not the UN should take action and assist the suppressed women in the Greater Middle East. The majority of the delegates are unanimous regarding whether or not action should be taken – a decisive no.
We’ve asked the delegate of the United States of America, Oliver Jauert, on the United States’ approach on this issue.
“Well, the other countries should not interfere, the United States do not want to legislate on behalf of any country and what the other countries are doing is taking away the countries sovereignty which the UN do not have mandate to do.”
The resolution was rejected with 7 in favor for the resolution, 9 against and only one abstaining.
The upcoming matter on the agenda will be enhancing the accessibility of education for women in the Central African Region, followed by the empowerment of rural women and their role in poverty and hunger eradication, development and current challenges.
