8 and 9 October 2015 in Tunis
The « Réseau Universitaire et Scientifique Euro-Méditerranéen sur le Genre et les femmes » (RUSEMEG), founding member of the Foundation, will organise the 6th Research seminar at the Faculty of Letters, Arts and Humanities of Manouba, Tunisia. The « Centre de recherche et d'étude pour la diffusion du français » (CREDIF) and the Center of Arab Woman for Training and Research (CAWTAR) will be the collaborators of this event.
The seminar aims to build a scientific approach on gender violence in our societies, and to make a reflection to public institutions and civil society in charge of this issue in the field. Thus, special attention will be given to doctoral students to enable them to master methodological and conceptual tools, and to listen associations active in the fight against gender violence. The socio-cultural basis of violence against women, identifying forms of violence suffered by women, the deconstruction of gender-based stereotypes, criminal law and the protection of women victims of violence are expected to be addressed.
This seminar is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacity of equality actors”, of the project “Women for the future in the Mediterranean” funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, and the project “Developing Women’s Empowerment”, labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
