The Council for American Students in International Negotiations (CASIN) is seeking American students and/or young professionals to serve as delegates to the 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations (CSW57). The Commission's 2013 priority theme is elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls. The Commission will also consider the equal sharing of responsibilities between women and men, including caregiving in the context of HIV/AIDS.

CASIN is an educational non-profit, non-governmental 501(c)(3) organization with UN ECOSOC consultative status providing young Americans unprecedented access to the international policymaking process. CASIN organizes student delegations to various international conventions, conferences, meetings, and proceedings. Following training from CASIN staff and affiliates, delegates to CSW57 will observe proceedings, receive briefings from key stakeholders, including diplomats or NGO experts, and catalogue their observations. In the past, notes taken by student delegates have been used to support official NGO reports, journalistic accounts of the proceedings, and students' own academic research and coursework.
