In Tunisia

We elaborated several shadow reports on violence against women in Tunisia for submission to treaty monitoring bodies including the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the United Nations Committee against Torture.

We organized a National Women’s Rights Caravan, during which we collaborated with Tunisian NGOs to hold grassroots level awareness-raising and mobilization activities across the country over ten days.  Learn more about the Caravan at: https://www.facebook.com/CaravaneDroitsFemmesTunisie

We also organized a series of workshops over a year for Tunisian NGOs working on women’s rights.  Our trainings were designed to reinforce local actor capacities to implement grassroots level human rights education and legal accompaniment programs, and to conduct innovative, participatory program evaluations.

In Morocco

We elaborated several shadow reports on women’s rights, the sexual abuse and marriage of minors, and violence against women, for submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Committee on the Rights of the Child, and the Human Rights Council.  We also led training and advocacy missions to the Council in Geneva for its 26th session and to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights for its Morocco review.

We designed and carried out an intensive, participatory impact evaluation of NGO women’s rights projects, by developing innovative evaluation tools, publishing our How Do We Contribute to Change?  Methods and approaches for innovative impact assessments in human rights work Practical Guide, and organizing a series of six regional training workshops across the country on evaluation terminology and methodologies for over 150 members of grassroots level local associations.

In Libya

We conducted a participatory needs assessment and mapping of the status of human rights with international actors and local associations and activists from diverse regions across the country.
