From Nairobi to Davos

February 1, 2007 at 12:45 pm Leave a comment

Mary Robinson blogs the World Economic Forum on oD Today in the light of her experience at the World Social Forum. In contrast, the gender profile at Davos is terrible, despite the fact that the WEF report on the global gender gap was discussed there.

She feels ‘frustrated at the power of the few to influence agendas, shape language and determine the outcomes of contemporary events.’ And looks forward to how links could be made in the future between the WSF and the WEF especially in relation to justice and human rights.

Mary Robinson is President of Realising Rights The Ethical Globalization Initiative
