Arab Women Legal e-Platform launched

As a result of the cooperation between the Centre for Arab Women Training and Research (CAWTAR), UN Women and UNDP, and with the financial support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, and the Arab Gulf Program for Development (AGFUND), CAWTAR successfully launched the “Legal and Human Rights of Women and Men: between Equality and Gaps” in Tunis on 28 March 2016. The e-platform aims to assist policy makers, women machineries and concerned civil society organization to better asses, analyze and understand the legal status of women across the region by compiling laws related to the status of gender and human rights in 20 Arab countries. The e-platform enables users to search by different topics and related rights, such as education, health, violence, political participation and contribution, access to justice and right to litigation in economy in each country. The online tool also allows for regional, cross-country comparisons across topics and indicators and provides information about best practices to facilitate experience exchange among Arab countries, and accordingly encourage legal reforms.
