Every year, CSW attracts thousands of NGO members and hundreds of country representatives from around the world to discuss critical issues for women, galvanize attention and spur action. More than 1,035 NGOs and a total of 8,100 representatives have registered to participate. Setting a new record this year, about 220 side events are planned on UN premises, organized by Member States and UN entities, many in collaboration with civil society.
60th session of the Commission on the Status of Women - CSW60 will feature the first review of the historic agreed conclusions from the fifty-seventh session of the CSW (2013), which focused on ending violence against women. These are draft agreed conclusions to be discussed during the session on 14 – 24 March 2016.
