Advocating for women in the Mediterranean: the CSO WINS Project in Algeria

The CSO WINS project will be introduced on 1 June 2016 in the Association des victimes du terrorisme DJAZAIROUNA's headquarters, in Blida, Algeria. On this occasion, the Foundation and the “First follow-up Report of the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation of the Ministerial Conferences” will be also presented. The event is organized within the framework 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.

This project aims to strengthen the civil society organizations skills in the mobilization of policy-makers and public opinion for women’s rights, by applying laws and measures towards gender equality. This is pursued through both the transfer of lessons learned and fieldwork activities. One of the first outcomes of this project is the publication “Practices from the field. Advocating for Women in the Euro-Mediterranean region”. It analyses the critical factors of success to start an advocacy campaign, taking as main references 12 successful practices selected in advance. The next step will be giving support to 8 associations that will deploy advocacy campaigns in their countries. This activity is the result of the capacity-building training organized in April 2016 that focused on the planning of advocacy actions within the specific political context of the participants. Indeed, it strengthened the synergies and allowed the 42 organizations coming from both Europe and the Southern Mediterranean (the participants came from: Algeria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Egypt, Spain, France, Greece, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia) to share experiences.

The CSO WINS project is led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean – IEMed (Spain), in partnership with DJAZAIROUNA (Algeria), the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research – CAWTAR (Tunisia), the Federation of the Democratic League of Women's Rights - FLDDF (Morocco), the Forum Femmes Méditerranée - FFM (France), the Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association Asala (Palestine) and the Euro-Mediterranean Academic and Scientific Network on Women and Gender - RUSEMEG (France).
