Asia Pacific Forum on Woman, Law and Development (APWLD) was developed from dialogues among Asia Pacific women lawyers, social scientists and activists, which began at the 1985 Third World Forum on Women, held in Nairobi, Kenya. The women participating in the dialogues recognized that while law is used as an instrument of state control over resources, rights and even women’s bodies, it can also be used to help effect political and socio-economic changes in our societies.
It’s “Programme Working Group Meeting” was conducted from 28th to 31st August 2009 at YMCA ChiangMai , Thailand and as a Member organization of APWLD, National Fisheries Solidarity Movement (NAFSO) also represented the Meeting to plan next year activities of the programme discussing and sharing all others experiences.
