Peacemakers Project: Increasing Libyan women's contribution to Peace making

In partnership with the Institute for War and Peace Reporting and the Ministry of Labour and Rehabilitation in Libya, the Trajectories for Peace and Development Association carried out the first phase of the "Peacemakers" project which consisted in training 12 Libyan women on the United Nation’s Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR1325) on women, security and peace.

The project goals are the following:

  1. Develop and empower the capacities of 12 Libyan women on international resolutions and conventions related to women to be used as a tool to defend the rights of women, and most importantly, to participate in building peace and social peace and to contribute to the transition period.
  2. Enhancing the participation of Libyan women in conflict resolution through participation and presence at dialogue tables.
  3. Enable the trainees to contribute to the creation of intellectual community development recognising women contributions to conflict resolution, as both affected individuals and key players in negotiations.
  4. Increase the percentage of women involved in civil society to catch up with women in Arab and world countries.
  5. Raising awareness of the importance of UNSCR1325 and providing the opportunity for women involved in security, justice and civil society issues to tell their stories as women working in different institutions, convey the challenges they face, and their ideas on how to increase women’s participation in all aspects of daily life in Libya.
  6. Forming a team of specialized Libyan experts in UNSCR1325.
  7. To prepare participants to train women and youth of both gender on international agreements, in particular UNSCR1325 and its importance in enhancing their role in community peace.

The project marked the participation of some important political figures such as the Minister of Labour and Rehabilitation, Al-Mahdi Al-Amin, the Minister of State for Women Affairs, Asmaa Al-Usta, and the Director of the Civil Society Commission, Jamal Adass.

The training was supervised by a high-level women’s professional team , including Ibtisam Al-Qasabi and Ridha Al-Tabouli.

 The participants in the first phase of the project received certificates as "Certified Trainers” from the Ministry of Labour and Rehabilitation. The second phase of the project was launched in mid-November 2018 and is expected to run through February 2019.
