International Conference - Violence, Honour and Revolution: Towards Alternative Gender Equality Futures

The goal of the conference is to create a forum for bringing together activists, NGOs, politicians and academia to share their experiences in the above mentioned areas. Guests of honour will be dr Nawal El Saadawi and Buthina Canaan Khoury.

The conference is taking place within the project “Preventing Honour-Related Violence by Education and Dialogue through Immigrant NGOs ('FATIMA')” funded by the DAPHNE programme of the European Commission. FATIMA is focused on capacity-building of ethnic minority NGOs to be active stakeholder in HRV prevention through community work. The training material is based on European Convention on Human Rights, Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence, UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and UN Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women to stimulate behavioral changes in the communities.
