Workshop on “Enhancing Youth and Women Participation in the Political Life”

The National Center for Human Rights organized a workshop entitled “Enhancing Youth and Women Participation in the Political Life”. The said event took place at Queen Alia Fund for Social Development in Tafila Governorate on Feb 16, 2013. The said workshop was attended by representatives of a wide cross section of NGOS, youth and women.

The workshop aimed at filling some of the knowledge gap by sensitizing the participants on the women and youth participation in the political life.

During the sessions of the workshop, the participants explored a number of themes. One session tackled issues related to the importance of women and youth participation in the electoral process and identified the challenges that undermine their full participation, in addition to the remedial options to address theses constraints.
