Where can I find statements delivered by delegates during the opening session of the CSW60 (2016)?
Last Updated: Mar 18, 2016
Statements delivered by delegates from the 58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) are accessible through the United Nations PaperSmart platform. Statements delivered at the CSW57 (2013) session are available from the CSW57 website.
Speeches and communications delivered by the representatives to the commission during past sessions are issued as summaries in the final report. The CSW communications committee puts together a summary of issues and communications received which are issued in the final report of the CSW to the Economic and Social Council.
A cumulative list of the symbols of the annual reports is available in the UN-I-QUE database and also searchable from UNBISnet, the the library catalogue. Older copies that have not been digitized are available in hard copy at the Dag Hammarskjöld Library.
Summaries of discussions of the CSW Chair are issued in an official document under symbol series E/CN.6/2015/INF/* at the end of each session. For example, The Chairs’ summaries of the panel discussions during the 59th session are issued in documents: (E/CN.6/2015/INF/12 and E/CN.6/2015/INF/13).
CSW may also issue outcomes/agreed conclusions on priority themes set for each year. These contain an analysis of the priority theme and a set of concrete recommendations for governments, intergovernmental bodies, other institutions, civil society actors, and other relevant stakeholders. The recommendations are to be implemented at the international, national, regional and local level. Available agreed conclusions are available from the UN Women website and searchable from the UNBISnet, the Library catalogue.
