Thematic Areas

The Institute for Feminism and Human Rights (IF&HR) works to realize the full implementation of international human rights obligations towards women and girls – especially the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

The main focus of our work is to promote a Feminist understanding of the oppression of all women and girls in society, and to develop appropriate remedies in five thematic areas:

Feminism and male violence against women and girls including prostitution and trafficking in human beings
Feminism and the sexual and reproductive rights of women and girls
Feminism, women and political participation and power
Feminism and new economic systems
Feminism, environment and climate change
