This policy paper takes its mandate from CONCORD’s strategy which states that human rights and gender equality are the approaches that will underpin our advocacy work, basing its content and recommendations on several activities of the HRBA Task Force.

The goal of this paper is to

  • Outline a common understanding among CONCORD members regarding what the HRBA is
  • Explore and make recommendations regarding how CONCORD can better integrate the HRBA and its various components in its external communications
  • Clearly position gender equality and women’s empowerment as integral and complementary to the HRBA
  • Explore and make recommendations on how CONCORD can better integrate the HRBA into its way of working, including how Working Groups operate
