These papers were commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat for the fifth meeting of Commonwealth ministers responsible for women's affairs in Trinidad and Tobago in 1996. Topics covered include: increasing women's participation in politics and economics, and human rights concerns for women.




When Ministers Responsible for Women's Affairs met in Trinidad and Tobago for their Fifth Meeting, the theme of their meeting “Engendering the Agenda” provided the opportunity for reviewing progress which had been made in the implementation of the Commonwealth Plan of Action on Gender and Development since its adoption by Heads of Government in Auckland in November 1995. They discussed further strategies for achieving effective implementation of the Plan of Action and ensuring that gender was integrated into critical economic, social, human rights and political issues. Their decisions would play a crucial role in ensuring that the Commonwealth Vision for Women by the Year 2000 is realised.
