Menstrual Hygiene Management – the Impact on Girls’ Education

Date: 17 October 2018 | Time: 18:30 to 20:00 | Venue: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association UK, Westminster Hall, Palace of Westminster, London SW1A 0PW

In many parts of the world, especially in Africa and Asia, the education of girls is limited and even curtailed by cultural and social inhibitions surrounding menstruation. This is a massively important issue but, because of sensitivities about what can be mentioned in polite society, it is very often ignored, blighting the lives of thousands of young women and thwarting the development of whole countries. The CEC has brought together four experts in the field, all of whom have practical experience of alleviating the problem through practical action.

This discussion will be a major opportunity to hear about one of the most vital matters affecting the education of young women, and possible solutions through collaboration. All are welcome.

Shared Commonwealth Values in Education: Where are we now?

Date: 22 May 2018 | Time: 10:05 – 15:00 | Venue: The British Council, 10 Spring Gardens, London SW1 A2BN

With the Commonwealth higher up on the British Government's agenda than ever before and a vigorous Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting behind us, this is a moment to look to the future with new determination.

We hear much uplifting talk about the Commonwealth being bound together by shared values, but apart from aspects of a common history, what exactly are these values and are they in good health?
