Activities and Initiatives: Gender

Gender and Citizenship Initiative
2002.
Organized by: United Nations Development Programme - Programme on Governance in the Arab Region (UNDP-POGAR) and the International Development Research Center (IDRC) in Canada..
The G&C; initiative offers research on women's citizenship in selected Arab countries and raises public and media awareness about the scale and implications of gender inequalities inherent in key legislation and discussed in the Arab Human Development Report of 2002. The initiative is to build the capacity of Arab women's NGOs in networking and advocacy to lobby for policy changes and to develop partnerships between women's NGOs and parliamentarians.
