Countries covered: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
1) Launching a regional campaign on zero tolerance for violence against women and girls (VAWG) in order to change mind-sets, attitudes and political perception of GBVAW as a domestic issues;
2) Strengthening women’s rights CSOs-led dialogue with decision makers to promote women’s human rights advocacy to demand political and prioritised action, and to build a zero tolerance culture towards GBVAW that enables legal and policy change;
3) Establishing a Regional Civil Society Observatory (Amman, Jordan) to follow up on governmental commitments in three key areas: GBVAW; Women, Peace and Security (WPS), and preventing violent extremism (PVE). The Regional Civil Society Observatory will also ensure improved collective knowledge to support the adoption and implementation of policies in this area.
