IDPC is joining a panel entitled The researcher-policymaker dialogue: International feminist criminology and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (Thursday, 17 November - 10:00 to 12:20 / Atlanta, Georgia, United States) with a presentation on Advocating for drug policy change at the UN CSW. The panel is composed by the following presentations:
- International Feminist Criminology and the United Nations - Rosemary Barberet, Sheetal Ranjan and Dawn Beichner / Through our roles as liaisons to the United Nations via our organizations’ ECOSOC status, Rosemary Barberet (International Sociological Association, Criminologists Without Borders), Sheetal Ranjan (Division on Women and Crime – American Society of Criminology), and Dawn Beichner (World Society of Victimology)., we have established an ongoing collaboration and working methods in providing a researcher-practitioner-policymaker dialogue at the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). This involves strategically organizing globally representative parallel events through the NGOCSW coalition, disseminating the results, and publishing the best presentations in our discipline’s journals. Each of the collaborative panels centers on aspects of international feminist criminal justice: the role of women/girls as offenders, victim/survivors, and students and professionals working in criminal justice professions. In addition, some of the presentations address CSW priority themes, which change every year. CSW has become the global gathering place for feminists and attracts over 50,000 participants each year, including activists, academics, scholar-activists, practitioners, and policymakers. Quite simply, we believe in building bridges between this scholarship, academic journals, and the United Nations audience.
- Civil Society Participation in the CSW - Houry Geudelekian, Chair of NGO Committee on the Status of Women (NGO CSW/NY), New York / NGO CSW/NY was founded in 1972 under the auspices of the Conference of NGOs (CoNGO) and is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2022. It was formed in preparation for the International Women’s Year (1975), the UN Decade of Women (1975-1985), and the First World Conference on Women held in Mexico City in 1975. Its mandate was to provide a forum for exchange of information, facilitating a corporation among its member organizations and later, assisting the international community in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action (after its adaption during the fourth International Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995) and other UN agreements. While NGO CSW/NY has developed and grown since 1972, it has been a key platform for international advocacy toward the promotion of women’s human rights, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. This presentation will cover how academic NGOs such as the American Society of Criminology can provide input at international fora, as well as the gains made by NGOCSW in areas relating to women, crime and justice.
- Advocating for Drug Policy change at CSW - Marie Nougier, Head of Research and Communications, International Drug Policy Consortium, London / Since 2008, Marie Nougier has been responsible for the communications and publications work stream of International Drug Policy Consortium, and engages in networking, civil society capacity building activities, and policy advocacy engagement, in particular at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs. Marie also supports IDPC’s activities in Latin America, where she helps coordinate a project to reduce the incarceration rate of women for drug offences. Marie is also a member of the Core Group of the EU Civil Society Forum on Drugs. Her language skills in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese are an asset for the development of a multilingual center of expertise at IDPC. Marie has a Masters’ Degree in international law, human rights, and the law of armed conflicts. She will address how evidence and research on women, drugs and incarceration can have an impact in international policymaking for a such as the CSW and the CND.
- Gender-Based Violence: Global Knowledge, Global Action - Kalliopi Mingeirou, UN Women / This presentation will discuss how research has been used within the work of the United Nations and how researchers can improve their dialogue on these issues with the international community in the future.
- Translational Research on Violence Against Women and the Role of Academic Journals - Claire M. Renzetti, University of Kentucky and Editor, Violence Against Women / There is a disconnect between research, practice, and policy in the criminological field. Often, very broad evidence-based ideas need to be reduced to actionable sentences that can fit into policy documents. This presentation examines the dialectical relationship between research and public policy by examining how research on violence against women has influenced various policy and legal reforms throughout the world, while specific policies and laws have prompted empirical research. Academic journals, as the primary venue for the dissemination of empirical research have a role – indeed, a responsibility – to publish research that does not simply satisfy academic curiosity, but instead, is purpose-driven, translational research. The presentation offers recommendations for how journals may achieve this goal.
