Expert Group Meeting on Policies and Strategies to promote Empowerment of People
The Division for Social Policy and Development (DSPD) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) is organizing an Expert Group Meeting on "Policies and strategies to promote empowerment of people in achieving poverty eradication, social integration and full employment and decent work for all" from 10 to 11 September 2013 in New York, as part of the preparations for the 52nd session of the Commission for Social Development (CSocD) that will take place in February 2014.
The outcomes of the expert group meeting will constitute an important input for the work of the Commission, particularly by providing concrete, evidence-based suggestions for the formulation of strategies that have been shown to advance the empowerment of people. The expert group meeting will also be of use to suggest topics that the Commission, within its mandate, should take up in the years ahead. Taking into account that the international community is in the process of defining its future development agenda, the outcomes of the meeting should inform such process of the implications of empowerment for the design of the agenda.
