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.

This issue of INSTRAW News examines the situation of women in management in such diverse nations as Gambia, Tunisia, Malaysia, Ecuador, Spain, Yugoslavia and the United States, and what governments and corporations are doing to remediate the disparities. It also examines some of the theory behind efforts to increase women's upward mobility, and takes a look at how women fare in the United Nations System, where 35 per cent participation by women in high-level posts is targeted by 1995.
