FEMICIDE Project: brief introduction
The FEMICIDE team’s work is aimed at raising awareness about and promoting exchange on the topic of femicide, the killing of women because they are women, within the UN framework. Since 2012 the FEMICIDE team, dedicated to ending all forms of violence against women, has called for global action, to end the killing of women because they are women, shown what has been done and what has to be done to improve the safety of women in conflict and in flight, made people aware of the abuse and femicide of older women, tackled the issue of contemporary forms of enslavement of women and girls, attracted attention to state responsibility with regard to femicide, and urged the establishment of a Femicide Watch in every country. The first resolution on gender-related killings adopted by the General Assembly in 2013 confirmed the relevance of the team’s work. A second resolution followed in 2015.
Since the rate of violence against women has increased during the COVID19-crisis, the project team have decided to turn June into the "End Femicide" month.
Climate Crisis Related Migration Project: brief introduction
According to the Global Report on Internal Displacement, in 2018 61 percent, thus 17,2 million of all newly internally displaced were displaced due to sudden on-set disasters such as floods, storms, droughts or wildfires. Yet, this is only the beginning of a problem that will increasingly and inevitably concern us in the future as extreme weather events caused at least in part by climate change are predicted to occur in an ever-increasing number over the next years. Therefore, the problem appears to be clear. Nevertheless, international awareness as well as reactions seem to be rare.
