    Security, poverty reduction and sustainable development: challenges for the new millennium.

    Colletta NJ; Forman JM; Vanheukelom J

    Washington, D.C., World Bank, Social Development Department, Post-Conflict Unit, 1999 Sep. 30 p.

    This booklet presents the outcome of a dialogue among technical experts, donors, and senior World Bank staff to explore the relationship between security and development in a world increasingly affected by violent conflicts. The dialogue was designed as a series of learning events to raise awareness and understanding of a matter that is drawing growing concern: the impact of small arms, civil war, violence, and conflict on poverty reduction and sustainable development. However, this dialogue was not meant to be a prescriptive or an advocacy exercise but, rather, an attempt to better define the problems, share experiences and ideas, and lay the foundation for future work with development partners in this area. It was recommended that these issues and the agenda on security reform be mainstreamed in the work of the World Bank, since they are central to the fulfillment of the Bank's mission of sustainable growth and poverty reduction in conflict-prone or post-conflict areas.

    Advancement of women: Argentina, Bangladesh, Costa Rica, Cote d'Ivoire, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guinea-Bissau, Marshall Islands, Philippines and Portugal: draft resolution. Violence against women migrant workers.

    United Nations. General Assembly

    [Unpublished] 1996 Nov 5. 4 p. (A/C.3/51/L.17)

    This UN resolution opens by recalling previous resolutions about violence against women migrant workers, the conclusions of world conferences, and the report of the Special Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights that all emphasize the importance of protecting the human rights of vulnerable groups. The resolution also notes that large numbers of women cross international borders seeking work and that both sending and receiving states benefit from this activity. The resolution expresses concern about continued acts of violence taken by employers against women migrant workers and notes that some receiving states have taken measures to alleviate the plight of these women. The resolution acknowledges the report of the Secretary-General on violence against women migrant workers and a 1996 expert meeting held in the Philippines. In accord with the UN's determination to prevent and eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls, the resolution encourages Member States to enact protective legislation; periodically review the implementation of this legislation to ensure its effectiveness; consider adopting legislative sanctions against intermediaries who exploit women migrant workers; conduct regular consultations to identify problems; and sign, ratify, or accede to the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families and the 1926 Slavery Convention. The resolution also recommends ways the UN community can address this problem.
