Situation of Palestinian women within and outside the occupied Arab territories


The Economic and Social Council,

Deeply concerned about the prevailing living conditions of Palestinian women within and outside the occupied Arab territories,

Recognizing that the mass uprooting of Palestinian women from their homeland seriously affects their participation and integration in the development process,

Noting that no comprehensive study relating to the status of Palestinian women within and outside the occupied Arab territories has been conducted in the United Nations system since the World Conference of the United Nations Decade for Women: Equality, Development and Peace, held at Copenhagen from 14 to 30 July 1980,

Recalling the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and other appropriate United Nations organizations,

Taking note of chapter II of the report of the Secretary-General on the situation of Palestinian women and children in the occupied Arab territories, submitted to the Commission on the Status of Women at its thirtieth session,

1. Requests the Secretary-General to submit an updated version of that report to the Commission on the Status of Women at its thirty-first session;

2. Also requests the Secretary-General to prepare a comprehensive report on the situation of Palestinian women living within and outside the occupied Arab territories and to submit it to the Commission on the Status of Women at its thirty-second session;

3. Further requests the Secretary-General to submit an interim report on the preparation of that study to the Commission on the Status of Women at its thirty-first session;

4. Invites all Governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations and United Nations bodies to extend all necessary assistance to the Secretary-General in this regard.
