The Puck Building - 295 Lafayette Street, The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10012

Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches, and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations. 


This week, Dr. Inga Winkler, lecturer at the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University will discuss how menstrual health is gaining attention in global development, in the popular media and in advocacy efforts, and it is increasingly framed as a human rights issue. This talk will unpack human rights principles of agency, autonomy and dignity to show that menstruation is about so much more than tampons, pads and cups.
