Anti-Corruption policy

Euromed Feminist Initiative IFE-EFI works for the implementation of the human rights of women and men as human and universal rights, and believes that achieving this goal is not compatible with corrupted practices. According to Kofi Annan, “corruption has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies”. Like democracy, corruption has an invisible gender. Studies show that when it comes to corruption, women are easier targets than men. They are subjected to corruption in daily as well as social, economic and political life. Consequences of corruption linked to gender include violence, human rights violations, poverty, prostitution, women and children trafficking etc. A corrupt judiciary system implements discriminatory laws against women. Women are more affected by corruption when it is aggravated by physical, sexual, economic and emotional violence. Women's access to information, justice, primary services (health, education, water, and shelter), financial resources, goods, employment and political life is problematic worldwide and requires promotion and special efforts.
