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.
