CSW68 – APT & RENATE members contribute to webinar 14 March 2024.

Below we offer a recording of the RENATE side event at the The 68th annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW68), the UN’s largest annual gathering on gender equality and women’s empowerment, took place this year from 11 – 22 March under the priority theme, Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective”. 


RENATE chose to prepare and deliver their side-event at the CSW68 to speak to the issues of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery as they relate to the priorities of this year’s CSW68.  Two APT Ireland members contributed directly to this year’s webinar.  Eilis Coe, RSC, who leads the RENATE online House of Prayer , prepared the opening reflection for the evening. Mr. Brian O’ Toole, Justice Director for the Presentation Sisters and leader of the RENATE Law Task group research, presented a comprehensive overview of the current piece of research underway by the RENATE Network. This research explores the legal provisions- or lack thereof- by six European countries, for victims/survivors of human trafficking.  

This years event was moderated by Ms. Anne Kelleher.

Thanks to Brian O’ Toole, in the link below, we offer a segmented recording of all inputs to this event. These are a very useful resources and provide up to date information on various considerations regarding anti-human trafficking initiatives by Religious sisters and their associates across Europe.
