International Women's Caucus

The Ministry for Women convenes the International Caucus – a forum for government agencies and non-government organisations to work collaboratively on international issues relevant to the interests and well-being of women. 

The purpose of the Caucus is to provide a forum for government agencies, NGOs and relevant individuals to collaborate to enhance New Zealand’s capacity to participate in and contribute to international fora arising from the institutions and instruments of the United Nations relevant to the interests of women by: sharing information on issues and institutions, co-ordinating participation in international fora and co-ordinating dissemination of relevant information domestically.

The Caucus consists of those government agencies, individuals and NGOs with an interest and involvement in issues relevant to the interests and well-being of women that arise in international fora.  Involvement in the Caucus is voluntary.
