Actions in the Mediterranean - AIM

Member since 10.07.2018



Mission and objectives

Founded in 1995 by Simone Susskind and based in Brussels, Actions in the Mediterranean (AIM) is a Belgian association that implements initiatives for dialogue, conflict resolution and strengthening of human rights between peoples, especially between Europe and the countries of the southern shore of the Mediterranean. The first purpose of the association was to set up regional networks of female actors. For AIM, women are the essential actors of change and processes of democratic transition. Hence AIM's growing and ongoing investment in women's empowerment and transformative leadership. Another pillar of his activity is the support of the peace and reconciliation process in the Middle East.

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

AIM has adopted a cross-cutting approach to gender equality since it is a founding value of our association. This allows to address this question in all our activities and interventions.
When we are working on the issue of political participation, we are aiming at gender equality because we are talking about promoting access to women in the political sphere as is the case for men. We do this with the help of women whose path and / or public / political / activist / citizen posture are resources that can be used in a pedagogical, illustrative and demonstrative sense of the fight for gender equality.
We take a comprehensive approach to gender equality and women's rights.
