BRICS Feminist Watch (BFW): Formed in 2017, BRICS Feminist Watch (BFW)

has emerged as a global South Feminist alliance that provides a much-needed

gender analysis, perspective, voice and empirical evidence from the ground to

key global policy debates, International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and

large development projects. BFW is a network of feminist scholars, researchers,

and activists from the global South whose mission is to work for economic and

gender justice as well as sustainable and democratic development. The Alliance

brings the collective strength of feminist analysis and activism to promote

gender-responsive inclusive sustainable development and to make visible the

linkages between gender justice, environmental and economic justice as critical

to sustain movements and actions.

The Feminist Land Platform(FLP) is

a strategic and inclusive space for feminist organisations and leaders working

on women land rights and gender justice. Their purpose is to unite and amplify

voices and analysis from women struggles representing diverse constituencies,

while building alliances to change and address oppressive practices and social

norms for a just and equal society for all. By joining forces, the Feminist

Land Platform is focusing on building a bottom-up agenda on gender justice in

women’s land rights for political, economic and legislative changes.

Programme on Women’s Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (PWESCR) is an

international initiative in the area of gender and economic, social and

cultural rights. PWESCR works to promote women’s human rights, especially in

the context of economic, social and cultural rights by bringing a gender

framework to policy, law and practice at local, national, regional and

international levels through ever-evolving strategies and activities in both

conceptual and practical realms.

[1] PWESCR is the Global Secretariat for BFW and also anchors FLP’s

communication work. Interns will work with BFW and FLP members globally under

PWESCR’s supervision.
