Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality

Jan 2019 – Jul 2022
  • Donor: European Union
  • Topic: Inclusion, Institutions
  • Coordinator: Particip GmbH
  • Approach: INSPIRED
  • European Partnership for Democracy

The programme’s goal is to strengthen the role of CSOs active at the regional scale, in building sustainable development, regional cohesion and resilience, as well as in influencing policy-making in the Southern Neighborhood and the Euro-Mediterranean Space. The strategy aims at addressing the needs of the civil society in the Neighborhood South as an agent for change from a regional perspective, where Mediterranean exchanges both South-South and North-South are enhanced; and the shrinking of civil society spaces in the region is challenged. It aims as well at strengthening civil society and young female and male activists in their capacity to strategize, cooperate together, advocate for rights and social cohesion, and sustainable development.

  • We engage effectively with regional organisations and supported them in advancing their agendas through policy dialogue;
  • We facilitated the creation of regional thematic networks of CSOs;
  • We supported capacity building for Majalat, the newly created regional hub on structured dialogue on civil society to engage in policy dialogue;
  • We supported increased participation of young women and men by expanding programmes for young civil society leaders;
  • We supported CSO contribution to developing resilience, as well as contributing to stability at regional level by enabling CSOs to articulate their messages to regional authorities more effectively;
  • We supported EU Delegations in their engagement with civil society in partner countries.
