Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat
Social Policy

The Social Policy team coordinates annual reporting on key areas prioritized by Forum Leaders through the ‘2012 Pacific Leaders Gender Equality Declaration’.

The team also works closely with member countries and non government organizations in progressing and promoting the rights of persons with disabilities and inclusive development.

The Social Policy team works proactively with other Programmes of the Forum Secretariat, for example: collaborating with Economic Governance on the social impact assessment of trade agreements and economic reforms with a focus on the education sector; with Political Governance on the Gender and Human Rights Audit and Practice Parliament for Women.

The Forum Secretariat has commissioned various pieces of social research, usually on the request of member countries or as a ministerial mandate.
