Several of the seminar participants must be women scholars or scholars/practitioners from the developing world since one of the goals of the seminar is to foster professional linkages and the sharing of relevant experiences.

Proposals may address global problems or focus on specific regional questions. Above all, the participants should be committed to producing practical improvements in the lives of women and workable proposals likely to achieve that end. Seminars focused on broad policy issues will be judged according to whether practical implementation measures are included in the discussion.
