Democracy Reporting International (DRI) is a non-partisan, independent, not-for-profit organization registered in Berlin. DRI promotes political participation of citizens, accountability of state bodies and the development of democratic institutions worldwide. In Libya, Democracy Reporting International (DRI) has been supporting the constitution-drafting process and the work of Libyan civil society organisations on topics related to the constitution, human rights and local governance.
Jusoor Center for Studies and Development is an independent Libyan not-for-profit think and do tank registered in 2015. Jusoor is committed to economic and social development through women empowerment and developing innovative policies. Jusoor aims to promote research, critical thinking, open discourse and innovative solutions with a special focus on women’s issues.
The Fa’ela project has the vision of a Libya in which women effectively participate in public life. This vision is based on the theory of Change that if women CSOs and women leaders have better technical and organisational capacity, are better connected and coordinating with other CSOs and female decision-makers, and are supported by respected and influential Libyan figures, then these women CSOs and women leaders will engage more in public life and encourage other women to do so, this will contribute to an effective participation of women in public life in Libya, because women CSOs’ and women leaders’ increased capacity, resilience, engagement in strong networks will strengthen their role as female role models and carve out a space for women at large to step up and claim their spot in public life.
Accordingly, and in collaboration with Jusoor Centre for Studies and Development, under the Fa’ela project, DRI will conduct an assessment of the Situation of Libyan Women to identify the specific needs of women organisations and women leaders in Libya. Through this study, partners to this project will better understand the situation of Libyan women and the constraints facing them in taking leadership positions and taking part in decision-making processes. The main objective of this study is to assess to what extent, how and through which means women engage effectively in political, economic and social life in Libya.
