Background:

EuroMed Feminist Initiative (EFI) is a policy network that encompasses women’s rights organizations from the two shores of the Mediterranean and advocates for gender equality and women’s rights as inseparable from democracy building and citizenship, for political solutions to all conflicts, and for the right of peoples to self-determination. EFI seeks to improve and promote women’s rights as universal human rights, the value of gender equality and the use of non-violent means to solve conflicts. Our criterion and position align with the international resolutions and conventions and regional instruments promoting the universality of women’s rights and strengthening women's impact and voices in conflict resolution. 

For the past 7 years, EFI and its beneficiaries have gathered around a common discourse and core principles, which have structured the lobbying activities at regional and international level. These include the necessity to work on a political solution of the conflict leading to a transitional phase with international guarantees, and the need to pressure for adequate representation of women and women’s rights in all political negotiations and peace-building efforts. As a result, strong tools such as the Handbook “ABC for a Gender Sensitive Constitution”, or the “Recommendations for Nonviolent Transition towards Democracy through Engendering Constitution Building Process”, were developed and disseminated among the Syrian Civil Society. In parallel, direct support was provided to local CSOs to support women survivors, combat VAW and early marriage, or promote women’s political participation.

EFI will make a documentary on the gender sensitive constitutional process that will shed light on the work undertaken by EFI and its partners for the past 12 years. The film will be used as an advocacy tool and will question EFI partners on their definition and vision of “What is a gender sensitive constitutional process?”.

Our criterion and position align with the international resolutions and conventions and regional instruments promoting the universality of women’s rights and strengthening women's impact and voices in conflict resolution. 

Political transitions are an opportunity to shed light on women’s rights and gender equality in order to correct the historical exclusion of women from the political sphere. Protecting women’s rights, gender equality, and the principle of non-discrimination based on gender in constitutions recognizes women’s equal status and enables legislative changes addressing the existing discrimination.

In this context, and throughout the years of successful project implementation, EFI has developed important tools such as the “ABC for a gender-sensitive constitution”, a guide that aims to provide a feminist perspective on democratic constitution making in a systematic and accessible way. It answers the questions of how and why a constitution that is inclusive of women's rights and gender equality is needed. The guide is the result of a fruitful collaboration between EFI, researchers and activists from Syria, Europe and the Maghreb. It combines academic research and constitutional expertise with a feminist theoretic approach, enriched by the experiences of the women’s rights activists in the Euromed region and examples from different constitutions and processes across the world.
