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 study provides the conceptual framework for a series of research. It suggests a number of theoretical concepts which would analyze the inter-relationship between the changes affecting the role of women and the evolution of international economic relations in order to direct the future towards better development and better situation for women. It begins with some general reflections on the specificity of women's position in society and appraises women's position in two transitional periods of international economic relations.
