9 October 2018, Lisbon. The UfM dialogue on women empowerment, between governments and the concerned stakeholders, has started in 2015 with the objective to review countries and stakeholders’ engagements in the Euro-Mediterranean and to provide recommendations for the policy makers to advance gender equality agenda in the region. “Women Economic Participation”, “Combating violence against women” and “the role of women in peace and security agenda” are three of the four priority areas agreed with countries to be topics of the dialogue.
The event will be the first review meeting after the adoption of the UfM fourth Ministerial Declaration on strengthening the role of women in society, adopted during the Ministerial meeting held in Cairo, Egypt on 27 November 2017 and we expect it to validate the indicators for the follow-up mechanism foreseen in the Declaration.
