Launch of the project CSO WINS

January 2015

January 2015 marked the start of the project "Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open Policy Dialogue and Monitoring for Women IN Society – CSO WINS", implemented by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) and 6 organisations (the Fédération de la Ligue Démocratique des Droits des Femmes, the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research, the Forum Femmes Méditerranée, the association DAJAZAIROUNA of victims of terrorism, RUSEMEG and the Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association (ASALA). The project is in keeping with the mission and objects set out by the Euro-Mediterranean Women's Foundation (FFEM).

The project targets 8 countries ─ Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia ─ and is carried out with the financial support of the Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility, within the framework of the European Union’s European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument.

The general objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity-building of civil society organisations acting for gender equality in the southern Mediterranean and mobilise policy-makers and public opinion in favour of women's rights and to take part in monitoring of policies aimed at women on a Euro-Mediterranean scale.

To achieve this goal, the project will favour the transfer of the lessons learnt in the field of advocacy and political dialogue and networking of the organisations acting in favour of equality.
