IDSN members and associates from across the globe met in Geneva in November for the IDSN General Assembly. The assembly spread over two days brimming with energy, new ideas, and determination to strengthen the fight for human rights, justice and equality for all, irrespective of caste.

Members and associates shared the latest updates from their respective countries and future plans were discussed. A new IDSN 5-year strategy was also adopted, which will be finalised and published in the beginning of 2019. The assembly provided a good platform to network and learn from each other and find new ways to engage across countries.

The General Assembly discussions were especially focused on IDSN’s three coming strategic priorities – Dalit Women and Gender Justice; Equality and Participation; and Business and Human Rights. Programme priorities for the coming year were also discussed as well as other topics such as focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, growing the IDSN network and building on IDSN’s media outreach work.
