Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue on Advocacy for Gender Equality

Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue on Advocacy for Gender Equality

This dialogue will be held from 24 to 26 October 2017 in Casablanca (Morocco) as part of the CSO WINS project “Capacity-Building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open Policy Dialogue and Monitoring for Women in Society” funded by the European Union. CSO WINS is coordinated by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in synergy with the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation and in partnership with the Federation of the Women’s Rights Leagues, DJAZAIROUNA, the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research, the Forum Femmes Méditerranée, the Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association Asala and the Euro-Mediterranean Academic and Scientific Network on Women and Gender.

The Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue is conceived as a space for dialogue between 36 associations that are engaged in favour of women’s rights, European and Euro-Mediterranean policy makers, and other international stakeholders and organizations active in the field of gender equality in the Southern Mediterranean. 

The objective of this regional dialogue is to strengthen the role of associations in the planning, implementation and monitoring of European and Euro-Mediterranean policies related to women’s rights and gender equality in the Southern Mediterranean

In concrete terms, the meeting aims at:

  • Communicating on the advocacy campaigns and the peer-learning exchanges which were carried out in the framework of the CSO WINS project.
  • Updating the associations on the mechanisms of dialogue with the civil society of the southern Mediterranean in the field of gender equality.
  • Sharing successful experiences of advocating in favor of gender equality at national and regional level.
  • Presenting the associations’ prospects to achieve a significant impact on the situation of women in the future (women’s access to political responsibilities; fight against child marriage; economic empowerment of women; promotion of a culture of equality...).

The event will take place in two stages: a first day and a half reserved for civil society (24-25 October), and one full day dedicated to the dialogue with the institutions (26 October). The regional dialogue is an invitation-only event.
