EFI’s headquarter is in Paris and the regional MENA office is in Amman, Jordan with country offices in Amman and Beirut.

On October 1st, 2019, EFI in partnership with the Legal Action Worldwide (LAW) started implementing a 28-month project “Enhancing women´s participation in decision making and peace building processes in Syria”, funded by the European Union (EU). The overall objective is to contribute to gender-sensitive and inclusive peace-building process in Syria through promoting women´s participation, empowerment and women´s rights.

The expected results/outputs of the project:

Main activities of the project:

  • Capacity-building and tools to address VAW and CRSV for Syrian women and Syrian women lawyers.
  • Raising awareness, pressure dialogue and networking.
  • Empowering victims and survivors to participate effectively in Syrian-led and inclusive accountability strategies.

 

Intervention Background

EFI has been supporting Syrian women rights and human rights organizations and activists for the last couple of decades involving both and activists who stand for and advocate for women´s participation in all decision- and peace-making processes for and in Syria and for gender equality as central to political transition. The present project builds on the discussions and outcomes of this work and the recommendations to enhance knowledge and skills on prevention and protection from violence against women (VAW) and   Conflict related sexual violence (CRSV), as a major obstacle to women’s participation in all decision-making processes related to the future of their country. During the networking meeting in 2016 organised by EFI with Syrian women’s organisations and networks from different political, religious and ethnic backgrounds, participants agreed on communalities and mechanism of cooperation, despite the differences in terms of understanding of democracy and gender equality or/and strategies to reach there. A preference was given to having regular thematic discussions, in particular sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

Furthermore, Legal Action Worldwide (LAW) held a preliminary dialogue with Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM) to assist in the Investigation and Prosecution of Persons Responsible for the Most Serious Crimes under International Law Committed in the Syrian Arab Republic since March 2011, on how the project can support the IIIM in achieving its mandate. Accordingly, LAW has aimed to transform survivor’s access to justice, by integrating existing documentation efforts with a durable approach of placing survivors and female Syrian lawyers at the helm of a creative and coordinated accountability strategy and providing them with direct legal representation.
