Advancing Libyan Women’s Participation During the Transition (Libya)


Titre : Advancing Libyan Women’s Participation During the Transition (Libya)

Pays : Libye

Durée : 2016 // 2018

The 2011 uprising and the following transitional phase provided both opportunities and challenges for Libyan women and men to rebuild their country. Specifically, the revolution presented an opportunity for women to assert their presence in the newly created political space. Yet, women represented less than six percent in Libya’s first post-revolution government and only three per cent of the candidates in the first election post-revolution. Since 2014, as the security situation deteriorated, supporting Libyan women in advancing their rights and in supporting their inclusion in conflict resolution and peace building efforts has become even more critical.

The project ‘Advancing Libyan Women’s Participation During the Transition’ or AMEL aims to strengthen the role of Libyan women in the political transition. AMEL aims to support the Women’s Empowerment and Support Unit at the Presidency Council so it can play an active role in ensuring that women’s rights are integrated in transitional policies and legislations. Support to key women’s organizations in Libya aims to enable them to participate in the transitional process and to provide an effective lobby for women’s rights. Finally, the project supports the mainstreaming of a gender perspective in all international support being provided to the country during the transition.
