Welcome to the INSTRAW LIBRARY, a compilation of around 600 publications produced by the former UN International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW), which served as the leading UN institute devoted to research, training and knowledge management to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. INSTRAW, along with DAW, OSAGI and UNIFEM, came together in 2010 to establish the present UN Women.

The Legacy of INSTRAW

In addition to the INSTRAW Library, the UN Women Training Centre presents the publication “The legacy of INSTRAW in promoting the rights of women. A historical record of the Institute between 1976 and 2010”, which intends to pay tribute to the story of INSTRAW as well as to the women’s movements and governments which supported it.

Description: This booklet provides a brief description of the consultative meeting held in New York by INSTRAW from 28 to 30 May 1991 in collaboration with Statistical Office of the United Nations Secretariat which aimed to pool expertise and experiences in the use of available statistics and data on ageing and to address problems pertinent to the availability, adequacy and reliability of data on elderly women. This also yielded specific recommendations on the approach and techniques which can be used for collecting and analysing statistics relating to elderly women and suggestions for follow-up work at different levels on improving the compilation and analysis of statistics on elderly women.
