Description: 

From November 14-17, 2008, up to 1,500 women's rights leaders and activists from around the world will converge on Cape Town, South Africa at the 11th AWID International Forum to discuss the power of movements.

What is AWID?
The Association for Women's Rights in Development is an international membership organisation that works to strengthen the voice, impact and influence of women's rights advocates, organizations and movements internationally to effectively advance the rights of women.

What is the Forum?
The International Forum on Women's Rights and Development is both a conference and a call to action. The largest recurring event of its kind, the AWID Forum brings together women's rights leaders and activists from around the world every three years to strategize, network, celebrate, and learn in a highly charged atmosphere that fosters deep discussions and sustained personal and professional growth.

Delegates to the Forum participate in four days of plenary speeches, interactive sessions, workshops, debates, and creative sessions geared to powerful thinking on gender equality and women's human rights. Delegates also participate in informal caucuses, gala events, cultural activities, and social and political events geared to global and regional networking and alliance-building.

Delegates who participate fully in the Forum not only empower themselves with new tools and resources, but they also, collectively, re-politicize the gender and development community, strengthen alliances between women, and engage in work and thinking that is truly transformative rather than simply palliative.

Who can participate?
Participation in the AWID Forum is open to anyone who works or has an interest in women's rights, international development, and social justice. AWID particularly welcomes women and men from the Global South, young women, and marginalized groups that have had difficulty getting their agenda heard on a global stage.

What can I expect from the Forum?
You can expect to be enlightened, provoked and inspired by an exceptional group of thoughtful, forward-looking and fiercely committed women and men. You can expect to move beyond simply talking to getting involved in global action plans and campaigns that will emerge out of the Forum, but will last well beyond it. You can expect to work hard and gain an abundance of new skills, new knowledge, new colleagues, and new ideas for the long road ahead. You can expect to be welcomed, nurtured, fortified and challenged by a group of like-minded activists, academics and practitioners. And finally, you can expect to have more fun than you thought was possible at a conference!

Description: 

We are very pleased to announce the seventh biennial meeting of the International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society (IASSCS), entitled “Contested Innocence – Sexual Agency in Public and Private Space.” This conference is co-hosted by the Institute for Social Development Studies, the Consultation of Investment in Health Promotion, and Hanoi Medical University in Hanoi, Viet Nam.

IASSCS aims to strengthen the field of social and cultural sexuality research globally. It is committed to building equity in research capacity worldwide, to developing a broad range of research activities, and to strengthening communication among researchers, policy makers and activists.

The 2009 Conference theme will focus on socio-cultural analyses of issues surrounding sexual agency in public and private spaces. Cultural and political belief systems profoundly affect the ways in which sexual knowledge and practices are produced, situated, and represented in society. This theme invites conversations on the interplay of sexual innocence and sexual scandal in the media, of sexual agency in the context of limited public knowledge, and the development of sexual rights, human rights and sexual diversity in a post-colonial context.

The main themes of the conference sessions include, but are not limited to:
-Innocence and scandal: Sexuality and the mass media
-Cyberspace and virtual sexual reality
-Deconstructing sexuality: Public image and private reality
-Diverse sexualities in a globalized world
-Social movements and gender/sexual inequality
Sexuality across generations: Adolescence to old age
-Socio-political mapping of desires and identities
-Sexual stigma, sexual norms and the regulation of sexuality
-Sexual health, public policy and advocacy
-Sexual-economic exchangeFamily planning, reproductive health, and HIV/AIDS
-We look forward to the participation of individuals from community-based organizations, policy agencies, and academic institutions.
