The Report outlines the international and regional legal framework, highlighting relevant provisions and interpretations. Finally, the Report examines the extent to which States have met their due diligence obligations (setting forth a few country-specific case studies) highlights some best practices, discusses significant gaps in the research and makes recommendations for future action"

This report presents the proceedings of a conference which brought together "citizenship education" curriculum developers and and school principals in the Caribbean region. In Part I, the report opens with a synthesis of the national presentations on curriculum development, processes and reforms by a number of countries participating in the seminar, and examines the role which education should play in furthering human development through focusing on human rights and peace. Parts II, III and IV include lecture presentations and the outcomes of the three workshops. These include contributions on the practice of citizenship education in Cuba; the integration of citizenship values in the daily experience at school, and implications for classroom practice; the importance of emotional well-being for pupils and teachers; the social, ethical and educational factors necessary for achieving social cohesion; a description of a school in Anguilla, where teachers and students learn values, attitudes and behaviours for positive citizenship through daily practice; and the content and skills which should be integral to secondary school curricula aiming at education for living together. Part V summarizes the final debate, and concludes with proposals for action

This paper aims to indroduce health policy makers and planners to the concept of gender, and its role in health and health policy and in programme development. It shifts away from 'women in development' to explore 'gender and development', in other words approaching gender as a social rather than a biological idea. It aims to present an accessible review of the literature on gender and health
