  • Cooperation in the project: ”EU-TR Civil Network for Women in Politics” (2015)
  • EFOMW became a part of a broader network of non-governmental organizations that through this project wants to strengthen women's participation in politics.

    ”Political representation of women is a human right and an important condition for social justice and for equality in politics, for development and peace. A balanced representation of women in political decision-making and public management is an important condition for democracy. Democracy can only be achieved with an active participation of women in all levels of decision-making and management as decisions taken at those positions affect the whole society.”

    Project is working with:

    • Women’s participation in politics and lobbying
    • Experience-sharing for effective civil society in political decision-making
    • Know-how transfer increasing civil society competence to support women participation in politics
    • Introducing Turkish CSOs to EU women and democracy issues, advocacy practices;
    • Network establishment between CSOs for initiatives on women involvement in politics.
