52nd Session of the Commission for Social Development

At its fifty-second regular session, held from 11 to 21 February 2014, which was the policy year of the two-year review and policy cycle, the Commission for Social Development (CSocD52) considered the priority theme, “Promoting empowerment of people in achieving poverty eradication, social integration and full employment and decent work for all”. The Commission also reviewed relevant United Nations plans and programmes of action pertaining to the situation of social groups and the social dimensions of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development.

The opening of the Commission was addressed by, inter alia, the Vice President of the Economic and Social Council and the Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs. During its eight-day session, in addition to its general discussions, the Commission convened three high-level panel discussions: one on the priority theme; one on the emerging issue of social drivers of sustainable development; and one in observance of the twentieth anniversary of the International Year of the Family.
