New App To Strengthen Women's Human Rights

Reading time: 1 minute
"To make the texts and content of international agreements, UN resolutions and other documents relating to women's human rights more easily accessible, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights (SCHR) have developed a new app for smart phones and tablets."

"The app's search function allows users to quickly find the texts of international conventions, UN resolutions, declarations and other documents relating to various women's human rights and gender issues: from early marriage, to sexual violence to the economic empowerment of women. The database not only includes documents negotiated and adopted in recent decades within the UN system but also regional instruments. In future, the database will be regularly updated with newly adopted UN documents."
