Conference Overview:

The world, even in 2022, is still long way from achieving societies which will be peaceful, just and inclusive. The COVID – 19 pandemic exposed inequalities and discrimination even more than before, and even shattered human rights protection in countries’ systems. Still the numbers of victims of homicides, violence, war conflicts, and human trafficking are high. The proportion of prisoners held in detention without being sentenced for a crime is still high with no significant change since 2000.

We are still in a period where parliamentarians, leadership positions such as speakers and committee chairs are predominantly male. Still human rights defenders are killed, there are enforced disappearances, a more than 65% of journalists who are killed in non-conflict countries and territories.
Before the pandemic there have been a bit of positive results in reducing inequality in certain areas, but the pandemic exacerbated the existing inequalities and had hit the most vulnerable people and the poorest countries. The number of refugees is on its highest level, even in times of very strict rules of mobility.

What is also important to be mentioned is the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the gender equality progress. Restrictive measures increased the violence against women and girls, and also the care work at home, affecting women again.
Women have played an important and critical role as health workers, caregivers, managers and leaders in the front- line, during the process of response and recovery efforts. However, as we mentioned before, they still remain underrepresented in critical leadership positions. The crisis now presents an opportunity to reshape and rebuild systems, laws, and policies, so institutions can advance gender equality.
