Chapter Summary

The establishment of the International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (INSTRAW) was decided upon by the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) in its resolution in 1976, as a response to a request by the World Conference for the International Women's Year in Mexico City in 1975. According to its statute, INSTRAW seeks to promote the advancement of women by research, training and information. Its aim is to support their inclusion in development as participants as well as beneficiaries. Its programme planning, is inspired by the guiding principles and key concepts of the world conferences. During the reform process, in 2004 the new Executive Board of INSTRAW set up its Strategic Plan 2004-2007, formulating its vision as follows: &t;INSTRAW strives to be a recognized leader in strategic and innovative approaches towards achieving gender equality and making a difference in women's lives&t;.
