Recommendations - Civil Society Consultations on Developing Guidelines for Implementation of Women, Peace and Security Agenda

01 Jun 2020

EuroMed Feminist Initiative and the Coalition of Syrian Women for Democracy held a civil society consultation in March 2020 in Beirut on developing guidelines for implementation of Women, Peace and Security Agenda (WPSA) in the South Mediterranean, with particular focus on the Syrian crises.

The consultation with Syrian activists on developing guidelines for WPSA aimed at enabling a better understanding of the reasons underlying violence against women and girls, and favoured a debate on strategies to reduce all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls in the challenging context of Syria, while emphasizing women’s agency and participation in all stages of decision-making.
