UNESCO's Management of Social Transformations Programme (MOST) will conduct a MOST School on “Social policies, gender issues and human rights” within the context of the World Social Forum 2015 taking place in Tunis (Tunisia) from 24 to 28 March 2015.

This training initiative, based on interactive exchanges with young persons who are participating in the World Social Forum - especially young Tunisians - is jointly supported by UNESCO and the government of Argentina.

The organization of this MOST School has been encouraged by Dr Alicia Kirchner, Minister of Social Development of Argentina, and President of the Intergovernmental Council of MOST.

The School is coordinated by Dr Emir Sader, President of the Scientific Advisory Board of MOST.

Two specialists from Argentina will participate: Soledad Pavesi, Director of Vulnerable Populations in the Secretariat of Human Rights of the Nation; and Romina Caravello, an official from the Ministry of Social Development.

The last working session of the School will be enriched by presentations from organizations participating in the World Social Forum, including Oxfam, EKTINFO and other youth delegations.

This MOST School follows up on one for the Maghreb region, organized in the context of the World Human Rights Forum, held in Marrakech, Morocco, 26-30 November 2014 with the participation of young persons from Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia.
