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 analyses the impact of long-term trends in the world economy in the developing countries. It stresses the interlinkages between macro and micro levels of the economy. It approaches the subject from two perspectives: the position of women engaged in the category of gainful employment and the role of women in unpaid labour, including household work, farm work on their own land, and other activities where women are in the position of managing resources.
