The 14th AWID International Forum scheduled to take place in Taipei is cancelled

The AWID board has taken the difficult decision to cancel the 14th AWID International Forum which had been scheduled to take place from September 20-23, 2021,  in the City of Taipei. 


This is the first time that AWID has had to cancel a Forum since the first convening was held in 1983. As always, the wellbeing and safety of Forum participants remains our highest priority.
