New EWL project: Women’s organisations cooperating for change around the Mediterranean region

[Brussels, 12 January 2012] This spring, the European Women’s Lobby will organise a pilot phase for an exchange project with women’s organisations from the Mediterranean region. This project follows from the EWL members’ willingness to support women’s organisation in the democratisation process in Arab countries, and it will be supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

The objective of this project is to facilitate the first exchange between women’s organisations from (South) Eastern European countries, which have been involved in democratic transition in the last decade, and women’s organizations and groups active in the recent elections in Tunisia. The exchange of experiences and strategies will allow to identify priority issues, strategies and activities that can help to ensure a better participation of women in democratic transition processes.

An exchange meeting will take place in the end of March in Brussels. It will gather around 18 women who have been active in including women in democratic processes and transition - representatives of women’s organisations, women’s rights defenders, journalists - from (South/eastern) Europe and Tunisia. EWL members already in contact with women’s organisations in Tunisia and/or in the Euromed process will participate in the meeting.
