Dismantling discriminatory social norms to progress on the SDG

BACKGROUND

Social norms are unwritten rules that guide behaviour of communities and individuals. They influence what people think, feel and do, and give people expectations of what others do and approve of. In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, they drive gender inequality, discrimination against women and girls, contribute to gender-based violence including harmful practices such as child marriage and gender-biased sex selection, and limit women’s access to rights, resources and wellbeing.

Ministerial dialogue 4: ASPIRATIONS, ANXIETIES AND ATTITUDES OF YOUNG PEOPLE

Young people need opportunities to build their future. We have to invest in young people if we are to address demographic change successfully. The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn this into stark relief. When young people can see that there is a future and that their career goals are reachable, they stay, build families and contribute to the societies where they live. Fulfilling the rights of young people will be of paramount concern in the decades ahead.
