A call to organisations interested in political dialogue and advocacy of gender equality in the Euro-Mediterranean region will soon be launched in order to identify 24 participants in a workshop to strengthen capacities in the field.
This event forms part of the project CSO WINS funded by the European Union and developed by the European Institute of the Mediterranean and 6 other organisations: the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research (CAWTAR), the Fédération de la Ligue démocratique des droits des femmes (FLLDF), the Forum Femmes Méditerranée (FFM), the Djazairouna association of victims of terrorism, the Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association (ASALA) and the Réseau Universitaire et Scientifique Euro-Méditerranéen sur le Genre et les femmes (RUSEMEG).
The workshop is aimed at 24 southern Mediterranean organisations ─ Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia ─ to strengthen their governance and negotiation capacities with the authorities.
The objective is to encourage networking and the sharing of practices with organisations that already have experience in advocacy and political dialogue by addressing several issues: advocacy techniques, monitoring of political progress, preparation of an advocacy campaign, communication, lobbying, and so on.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
