Women's Rights & Gender Equality amidst Arab Springs

Event Date: 
October 27, 2011 (All day) - October 28, 2011 (All day)

The main objectives of the conference will be to discuss risks, possible joint efforts and ways forward to secure a transition that will address women’s rights agenda(s) and put social concerns and women’s proposals at the core of current important political processes.

"We hope for this dialogue to be enriched with perspectives coming from WIDE’s members from the ex-communist region; having gone through a very difficult transition process that has affected their participation and prevented their agenda from being put on the table and taken into account. That transition brought dramatic consequences in terms of rights and social and gender justice that the citizens as a whole now face but in particular women (Issue of neo-conservative and neo-liberal ideologies to work together against women’s rights).

We also would like to refer to the fact that we know a lot of women organizations have been supported directly through external aid from the EU after the beginning of transition/democratization processes were soon ‘abandoned’ to their fate once the transition process was officially ‘completed’ (drastic funding cuts, massive engagement and then total disengagement with dramatic consequences)."
