The training course “Engendering Constitution” took place from 28th November to 2nd December 2013 in Beirut. It gathered around 40 participants: lawyers, teachers of law, constitutionalists and representatives of women’s rights and human rights organizations. The course was organized in the frame of the program “Towards a democratic transition in Syria through an inclusive constitution building process”, implemented by the European Feminist Initiative IFE-EFI in partnership with the Coalition of Syrian Women for Democracy and other civil society organizations.
This program is funded by Sweden. The objective is to contribute to a nonviolent transition in Syria by supporting the constitution building process with women’s rights and gender equality as central constitutive elements.
Through this program IFE-EFI provides organizational, technical and financial support to different components of the civil movement in Syria in order to strengthen women's rights and participation and enhance dialogue and mutual understanding on gender equality and democracy between CSOs and social and political actors and stakeholders.
