YES WE CAN

Contribution for the first week of DAW discussion on Violence Against Women (VAW).

In terms of gaps in the knowledge base with regards to the extent and prevalence of violence against women, I would like to highlight the inhuman situation of migrant domestic workers, particularly in Asia, who often unprotected by legislation and legal loopholes fall trap of abuse and exploitation. This is particularly relevant in the case of Singapore, a country that imports domestic workers from Indonesia, Philippines, and others in the region, and still has legal loopholes with respect to migrant?s rights and their human rights. At the moment there are five cases of women domestic workers facing the death penalty in Singapore for having killed their employers. Reliable sources as well as people in the region agree that migrant domestic workers are living in many cases in a state of bondage, working 7 days a week, and unable to enjoy basic human rights and dignity. Sometimes employers, many of whom are women, do not pay their domestic workers, or pay them less than nat! ional wage standards. There are accounts that some employers have even tortured their workers to death. Maltreatment of domestic workers by employers in this country and in the region appears to be a common phenomenon. A serious investigation on the root causes as well as ways and means to correct this situation with effective remedies is most important and urgent. On behalf of vulnerable and voiceless women, thank you for bringing this issue to international attention

UN RESOLUTION 65/309
"Happiness Towards a Holistic Approach to Development"

In fulfillment of the above UN Resolution during 2014 and 2015 ISSER gave visibility to GNH (Gross National Happiness), recognized as "development with values." ISSER was invited by the government of Bhutan to participate during its International Conference on Gross National Happiness in Paro, Bhutan (November 2015). What follows (see pages 2 and 3) are some of the lessons we learned in this new paradigm of sustainable development. See content and gallery of photos.
