Call to participate in the Spotlight Initiative Civil Society Regional Reference Group

Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018

The European Union and the United Nations are embarking on a new multi-year programme, called the ‘Spotlight Initiative,’ which is focused on eliminating violence against women and girls and harmful practices. The Latin American regional programme will focus on eliminating femicide.

A key principle of the Spotlight Initiative is the meaningful engagement of women's rights groups and relevant civil society organizations. In line with this, a Civil Society Regional Reference Group (CS-RRG) will be established as a mechanism to bring in civil society participation and expertise during the inception and implementation phase of the Spotlight Regional Programme.

All applications must be sent to antonio.garcia@unwomen.org before June 10, 11:59 (Panama time)

A webinar with civil society will be organized on May 25 at 10: 30-11: 30am (Panama time) to share more information about the Spotlight initiative.
