Terms of Reference:
APWLD is Asia Pacific’s leading feminist, membership driven network. Our membership represents diverse women from 27 countries in the region and provides the strength and expertise that drive and execute our programmes. For over 32 years APWLD has been empowering women to use law as an instrument of change for equality, justice, peace and development. We use capacity building, research, advocacy and activism to claim and strengthen women’s human rights.
APWLD along with other civil society organisations from the Asia Pacific region have been advocating for a transformative development framework that departs from the market – driven development architecture and proposes a people drive alternative development model rooted in its five foundational shifts of 1) Redistributive Justice, 2) Economic Justice, 3) Gender and Social Justice, 4) Environmental Justice, and 5) Accountability to Peoples. Development Justice is a transformative development architecture that aims to reduce inequalities of wealth, power, and resources between countries, between rich and poor, and between men and women. This framework is based on the principles of common but differentiated responsibility and respective capacity and the right to development; embraces a holistic right-based approach; is grounded in international human rights obligations and peoples ‘sovereignty; and ensure that the human rights principles of equality, equity, non-discrimination, inclusive participation and decision-making, non-retrogression, and respect for universal and indivisible human rights underpin its policies and practices. Such an approach ensures that the most marginalised both benefit from development and become active agents of change.
