The international legal framework of human rights permeates international diplomacy, gender equality policies and development aid projects.

In the lecture new research on UN history revisits the drafting and conflicts behind key human rights treaties—from the UN Charter in 1945 to the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in 2000. In what ways were the universality of human rights and gender equality inscribed in core documents of the UN through contribution thanks to women delegates from Brazil, the Dominican Republic, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Indonesia, Egypt, Guinea, Togo, Nigeria, the Philippines, Ghana, and Namibia?
