Gather Knowledge of International Human Rights Law and Policy that Will Support the Campaign Goal
To make the case for a policy goal, learn which UN treaties the government has ratified and which UN Security Council resolutions support the reform sought. In gender equality matters, CEDAW and UN Security Council Resolution 1325 often contain the most relevant provisions, which Member States are obliged to fulfill. Invoke these in the advocacy materials, meetings, and interventions.
In 2013-2014, with the support of UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality, Karama developed several such tools to provide guidance about how CEDAW and 1325 can support specific gender equality goals.
