The Istanbul Summit is an international, non-governmental, multi-sector forum, which aims to gather stakeholders from every quarter of the international community to discuss the Global Agenda in a gender sensitive approach.
The Summit provides a setting for networking and experience sharing among members of civil society organizations, state institutions, intergovernmental organizations, academia, and private sector, to encourage and increase women’s role in sustainable development, peace & security, with the idea that gender equality is a prerequisite to these aims.
The Summit is organized annually by the Women's Platform under the umbrella of the Journalists and Writers Foundation (JWF).
