Promoting civil and economic rights of Algerian women
How to strengthen the civil and economic rights of Algerian women will be the focus of the seminar - training launched by ALDA, in cooperation with the Municipality of Monfalcone and the Ligue Algérienne pour la Défense des Droits de l’Hommes (LADDH), that will take place in Alger next Saturday, 26 April. The event will gather together women, representatives of women associations as well as representatives of local organisations promoting human rights and the social and economic inclusion of women in Algeria.
The training is a key step of the project ENSEMBLE, funded by the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia within the framework of the regional programme on Development Cooperation and International Partnership. The project envisages to strengthen the professional and entrepreneurial skills of women in the country as key element to foster the economic and social development at local level, mainly in rural and peripheral areas.
ALDA will bring in its expertise in the field by showcasing successful practices developed within its euro-Mediterranean cooperation framework. Particular attention will be given to the concept of citizen participation, core mission of ALDA since its establishment. Participants will reflect upon the relation between citizen participation and social and economic development with special focus on women. Mr Lucio Gregoretti, Head of Office on Tourism, Public Relations and International Affairs of the Municipality of Monfalcone and member of ALDA’s Governing Board, Mr Alessandro Perelli, Vice President of ALDA and Mr Aldo Xhani, ALDA project manager will be the keynote speakers of the event.
