For International Women's Day share your activism with us!

On the occasion of the International Women's Day, the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe launches a call for youth-led initiatives to combat gender based violence. Any individual, institution or organisation, by submitting its project/initiative, may be selected and invited in Madrid as a speaker to attend the Workshop and present it to decision makers, international organisations, field workers and others relevant stakeholders in the Euro-Mediterranean region who will be present in the Workshop

As a follow-up to the previous regional Workshops (Amman 2017 “Strengthening Capacities of Women Organisations” and Algiers 2018 “Application of Laws on Women’s Rights”), the 3rd Workshop will be organised in the third semester of 2019, under the theme of : “Narrowing the gap between the rhetoric and practice to protect women from violence” and will gather relevant stakeholders and experts in Madrid to discuss concrete solutions on the cross-border cooperation in protection refugee and asylum-seeking women and girls and the domestic implementation of the victim-centred approach.

The Workshops for the Empowerment of Women of the North-South Centre aim at ensuring the political participation of civil society organisations and promoting the regional cooperation and coordinated action in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean in the protection of women’s rights and in particular by focusing on combating violence against women.
