With the CISU small scale intervention, 20 participants from key CSOs in the MENA region working with GBV prevention through norm changing efforts will be gathered in Tunis for a two-day seminar/workshop. The seminar will: *support future synergies, a stronger regional network and hopefully contribute to collaborations of higher quality as well as kick-start new projects *facilitate a mutual stock-taking of what works, build knowledge and thereby develop projects and create activities that are more effective. *support the desired development of working towards mutual reinforcement, increased synergy and integration of regional efforts.
20 participants consisting of womens rights' organisations from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon as well as number of Tunesian womens rights organisations from the CSO shelter network.
Danner has experienced an increasing interest from its partners and broader network in the MENA region on how to fight gender-based violence through working with gender norms. Many of these organisations express a need to harvest others’ experiences and knowledge of what works when addressing gender norms. They also express an interest in testing similar interventions in their own country (Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco in particular). Danner wishes to meet this need through this small-scale intervention, which will constitute an important stepping stone for further work on addressing gender norms in the MENA region. The purpose of the intervention is to arrange a two-day seminar for selected women’s rights CSOs in the MENA region on fighting GBV by addressing gender norms. The overall objective of the intervention is therefore to support and build synergies as well as facilitate knowledge and practise-sharing between partners and other key stakeholders working with gender norms. The seminar will furthermore act as a kick-starter for projects and partnerships that address gender norms. With the CISU small scale intervention, 7 key CSOs working within this field (of GBV prevention through norm changing efforts) will be gathered in Tunis for a two-day seminar/workshop. The main outcome is exchange of experiences and capacity building among CSOs in the MENA region and in Danner on how to work with gender- and family gender norms as a tool to fight and prevent domestic violence.
