2021 Regional Index on Women, Peace and Security Agenda
The Regional Index on the WPSA was developed in 2021. It strives to cover all aspects related to prevention and protection, participation in decision making, relief and recovery, legislation, and strategy, as well as the role of civil society, thus aiming at contributing to deeper insight into the status of the WPSA in the seven South Mediterranean countries.
The overall objective of the Regional Index on the WPSA is to provide a global documentation on laws, public policies and services that contribute to the implementation of the WPSA in the region. It allows a diagnosis of the state of legislation and tools put in place to address the WPSA in the seven South Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia.
This Index also aims to provide policy makers with summaries of complex data, that can support informed decision making and actions in the implementation of the 4th UfM Ministerial Declaration on Strengthening the Role of Women in Society, in combating all forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG), in implementing the women, peace and security agenda (WPSA) in the region, and in preventing violent extremism (PVE).
