Manatū Wāhine Ministry for Women convenes the International Women’s Caucus, a quarterly forum for government agencies and non-government organisations (NGOs) to work collaboratively on international issues relevant to the interests and wellbeing of women. The Caucus was established in 2004. 

Members of the Caucus work together to enhance New Zealand’s capacity to participate in and contribute to international fora arising from the United Nations relevant to the interests of women. They share information on issues and institutions, coordinate participation in international fora, and coordinate how to effectively share relevant information domestically.

Involvement in the Caucus is voluntary. If you would like more information, contact
