The UN in Vienna

ICJW is represented on three active NGO committees based in the UN’s Vienna headquarters. The Vienna NGO Committee on Women, comprising 40 international organizations, makes particular efforts to reach out to and involve women from Central and Eastern Europe. Their purpose is to liaise with and disseminate information from the UN’s CSW and CEDAW committees.

ICJW is one of 43 organizations represented on the NGO Committee on the Family, which was founded in 1985 as a platform for the exchange of information on family issues, and to coordinate relevant NGO activities.

The NGO Committee on Ageing in Vienna is the European counterpart of the New York committee and does similar work.
