The Jusoor Center for Studies and Development is a Libyan non-governmental organization which is committed to independent policy research and to encourage human development through economic and social empowerment projects. The aim of Jusoor is to be part of the change through building sustainable development for women in Libya. Their vision is to bridge the gender gaps in the economic and social sectors through promoting the right kind of human development projects.

Founded in 28th December 2015, Jusoor is a think –tank which is part of the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation’s network of associations since April 2016. Between March and June 2017, Jusoor is carrying out an advocacy campaign to encourage female entrepreneurs to join the official market in Libya, in the framework of the CSO WINS project which is supported by the European Union.
