How do we effectively monitor ESCR? (Webinar ESCR-Net)

Here I share the information about a great webinar happening soon, organized by @francescaferuglio, with @WalterFlores participation, among other guests.


Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 08:00 (ETD)



Francesca Feruglio

You’re invited to participate in our first webinar on July 12 at 8 am ETD. We’re going to break down the process of gathering, analyzing and communicating data on ESCR so that advocacy and campaigns can be further strengthened by solid evidence.

  • In this webinar we will outline how to develop a monitoring strategy that can support your ESCR advocacy and campaigns. We’ll go over varying approaches on how to: define what to monitor, gather the data, make sense of it, and communicate to others about your findings.
  • Through practical examples, we will share how different organizations have used monitoring to advance ESCR at local and international levels. For instance, you’ll learn about how the Initiative for Social and Economic Rights in Uganda partnered with the Centre for Economic and Social Rights (CESR) and successfully advocated with the Human Rights Council to make a number of recommendations around business and human rights in Uganda , and you’ll hear what CEGSS (Centro de Estudios para la Equidad y Gobernanza de los Sistemas de Salud) has learned through 10 yeas of gathering evidence on equal access to health services for indigenous groups in rural Guatemala .
  • We’re going to ask you— and other advocates like you—to share your own experiences, questions and concerns with monitoring for ESCR.

Confirmed speakers include:

Mihir Mankad, Center for Economic and Social Rights, US

Angella Nabwowe, Initiative for Economic and Social Rights, Uganda

Walter Flores, Centro de Estudios para la Equidad y gobernanza en los sistemas de salud, Guatemala

All ESCR-Net members — and allies working to advance ESCR in their countries or internationally —are encouraged to join! So please forward this invitation to your colleagues and friends.
