Per our meeting yesterday, I’m beginning here a list of helpful research links. We’ll continue to add to this list throughout the year; send suggestions!
http://youthforhumanrights.org/ Useful for relating human rights to the MDGs. Here you’ll find videos for all the different human rights, and a longer video telling the history of human rights and how the Universal Declaration was created.
http://www.rbm.who.int/ Rock Back Malaria: The Global Partnership for a Malaria-free World.
http://www.unwomen.org/ Everything related to the status of women; obviously quite useful for the related MDGs.
http://www.unifem.org/gender_issues/ Includes several topics related to gender equality and the improvement of the status of women.
http://www.cgdev.org/section/topics/education Education and development.

For anyone curious about the specific roles and duties of each member of the dais, attached is a graphic organizer detailing the responsibilities of the chair, director, rapporteur, and the conference services team. This information can be found in the GC manual in more detail, but in this graphic format it’s very manageable for students.
