W’sHR App is a pioneering effort by Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights (SCHR), Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies (ICFG) and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA). With the common goal of promoting and implementing human rights, they identify women’s rights violations as extremely persistent and aim to facilitate negotiations surrounding this topic.

In 2015, the W’sHR app was developed as a practical tool; guiding the user through key issues of women’s rights. Perhaps the most unique Lucid app development, the W’sHR app does not have a linear structure, but rather connects specific paragraphs from UN body documents with specific keywords. The app includes a direct gateway to negotiated texts, as well as simple access to an overview of 134 keywords, their legal basis, and agreed UN language. This innovative tool serves stakeholders as a basis for strong argumentation, more coherent and efficient negotiation processes as well as safeguarding negotiated achievements. It helps to build capacity to make further progress in the field of women’s rights and gender equality.

The content and technical framework of the W’sHR App is updated bi-annually. After two years since its initial release, a comprehensive evaluation of the app and its users was conducted in order to optimise and extend the tool. We are delighted to see the app being downloaded in almost 150 different countries by officials, negotiators, and activists.
