ARROW collaborated with ASTRA and ASTRA Youth to conduct a review of the implementation of the ICPD POA. Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries failed to use ICPD as a framework to build a sustainable architecture to protect and promote women’s rights. The social and economic upheaval in the CEE region in the 1990s brought declining socio-economic conditions and increased inequity throughout the region, and there is a huge gender gap in the economic activity rate in all CEE countries.
