On December 10th, ICRH Belgium was co-organizing a lecture  on ‘Sustainable development goals and the global south’ of Ghent University.  This series of sessions is organized within the Global Minds Fund of the University, with the support of the Belgian Federal government. This fund aims at further developing and expanding the University Development Cooperation and sensitizing the broader University community bout global challenges and opportunities we face and to stimulate them to engage in finding solutions.
Belgians Vice-Prime Minister, Minister of Finance and Minister of Development Cooperation, Mr. Alexander De Croo was our key note speaker with a focus on: ‘Women are the key to progress’.  Minister De Croo has proven a strong record on women’s rights.
In 2017 he was one of the initiators of ‘SheDecides’, a global political movement launched worldwide which are supporting safe abortion, contraceptives  and family planning.
