In this workshop global political processes are pointed out like the call for a Special Rapporteur on Climate Change and Human Rights as the CIEL (Center for International Environmental Law) recently in 2021 indicates: „Momentum has continued to increase, as some of the most affected States are taking the lead in calling for the creation of the new Special Rapporteur as soon as possible. In particular, Climate Vulnerable Forum members in the Pacific, and in Africa and the Middle-East called for the creation of this new special procedure at the upcoming session of the Human Rights Council.“  

Goals of this workshop:

  • An interactive exchange of experiences with gender lens.
  • Getting to know storytelling from peripheries of cities and territories around the world, to show that no crisis is gender neutral.
  • Discussions about, which future we want. #SDGs #SDG5

She has a Law degree from Copenhagen University (2015) and Colombia (1989) and she has working experiences with issues of Women Human and Economic Rights, Peace, Water, Natural resources and Afro descendants and Indigenous peoples. Her interest lie in social movements dynamics in mapping power shift and privileges.

She finds that Gender legal cultures capture (or not) intersectionality, plurality of feminism or understandings of feminisms, and the need of coherence between institutional practices, policies, and laws to not (re)produce inequalities, all forms of violence and daily narratives that influence our and others lives.
