The main objective of the University Network and Scientific Euro-Mediterranean Women and Gender (RUSEMEG) is to develop academic and scientific knowledge on gender and women in the Euro-Mediterranean region and expand it to other countries of the Union for the Mediterranean by preparing joint research programmes.

In December 2012, the RUSEMEG was constituted as an association under French law 1901, based in Marseilles (France). This association is closely linked to the Maison méditerranéenne des sciences de l'homme (MMSH) in Aix-en-Provence, the Forum Femmes Méditerranée, the Fédération nationale de recherche sur le genre and the RING network.

Its board comprises members of the Réseau Universitaire et Scientifique pour le Développement de l’Egalité (Morocco), the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research – CAWTAR (Arab world), and the Centre d’Enseignement, de Documentation et de Recherches pour les Etudes Féministes – CEDREF (France). Other scientific centres and personalities from diverse countries have joined RUSEMEG: on the one hand, Algeria, Spain (UNESCO Chair Women, Development and Cultures in Barcelona), the Centre de recherches, d'études, de documentation et d'information sur la femme – CREDIF in Tunisia, and the European research group ATGENDER; on the other, women researchers, university professors, PhD candidates and students training and working in the field of gender and women.

As main activities, and based on the RUSEMEG’s objective to create a synergy between research and action, 4 travelling seminars – with and for PhD candidates – have been held in order to:

Transmit and share knowledge on the situation of women in the Mediterranean area; Encourage the meeting of university students and researchers; Involve young researchers.

These seminars are also open spaces for civil society actors working for equal opportunities between women and men in politics.

They are registered on the platform of the Euro-Mediterranean Women's Foundation
