TOWARDS A DEMOCRATIC AND NON-VIOLENT TRANSITION IN SYRIA THROUGH INCLUSIVE CONSTITUTION BUILDING PROCESS Engendering Constitution

24 Jul 2014

The training course “Engendering Constitution” took place from 28th November to 2nd December 2013 in Beirut. It gathered around 40 participants: lawyers, teachers of law, constitutionalists and representatives of women’s rights and human rights organizations. The course was organized in the frame of the program “Towards a democratic transition in Syria through an inclusive constitution building process”, implemented by the European Feminist Initiative IFE-EFI in partnership with the Coalition of Syrian Women for Democracy and other civil society organizations. This program is funded by Sweden. The objective is to contribute to a nonviolent transition in Syria by supporting the constitution building process with women’s rights and gender equality as central constitutive elements. Through this program IFE-EFI provides organizational, technical and financial support to different components of the civil movement in Syria in order to strengthen women's rights and participation and enhance dialogue and mutual understanding on gender equality and democracy between CSOs and social and political actors and stakeholders.

“Freedom Not Death for Defender Al-Khawaja” Statement- Bahrain- April 2012

10 Jun 2012

The network Secularism is a Women’s Issue demands the immediate release of human rights defender Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, detained and tortured, sentenced to life imprisonment in total disregard of his fundamental right to freedom of expression, on hunger strike for more than two months, and now risking death. His death in detention would be an assassination which the authorities of Bahrain would be entirely responsible for.

“With Grief and Anger” Statement- Paris- June 2012

3 Jun 2012

In 2008 IFE-EFI members were invited to represent and to participate in the 8th of March in Urfa, Kurdish city in Turkey. Every year thousands of Kurdish women come to Urfa to celebrate Women´s Day. On the way to Urfa the cars were stopped several times by the Turkish military police searching for weapons, also in the Mayors Car. The Mayor was a female Kurdish politician. The guests from IFE-EFI felt these interventions as harassments in order to delay the celebrations in Urfa and to humiliate the women. After the celebration they participate in Diyarbakir to a demonstration for Kurdish young women, victims of honour killing from all over the world. During the following days they visited a lot of women´s organisations. They heard in the centres many harsh stories from women/victims of harassments and abuse or punished by their own family blamed on honour in the Kurdish rural districts. One of the last days of the visit IFE-EFI representatives were invited to Leyla Zana´s home and got a personal talk with her for some hours. She was at that time prohibited to access to any meeting neither was she allowed to speak.
