The project CSO WINS ‘’Capacity-Building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open Policy Dialogue and Monitoring for Women in Society’’, is a European Union funded project. It targets local associations in order to strengthen their ability to mobilise public opinion in favour of women’s rights; and encourage them to monitor women-related policies in the political, professional and social sectors at a local, national and Euro-Mediterranean level.
This publication summarizes the project’s goals and achievements since 2015, with special highlight on 8 advocacy campaigns carried out by local associations from both sides of the Mediterranean. The campaigns helped to promote women’s role in politics and women’s inclusion in the labour market and to fight against violence against women and female child marriage.
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 Foreign Affairs and International Development 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.
