05.06.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The study aims to examine models and trends with regards to women's access and participation in legal professions in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia by drawing a picture of the status of women in the judicial and legal field (family law). This research uses several studies to offer an overall view of the similarities and differences in the region (good practices, difficulties, and so on). It addresses, among others, the effective implementation of acts related to family and personal status, which includes the role of courts, lawyers and magistrates in the implementation of laws and national and local strategies in this respect.
