NGO CSW Forum
The NGO CSW Forum is the civil society side of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). Consisting of hundreds of events throughout two weeks, the Forum runs parallel to the official CSW session taking place at the UN Headquarters. This provides civil society the opportunity to engage in the processes and CSW sessions without ECOSOC-accreditation or a UN grounds pass.
