ESCWA Centre for Women, in cooperation with Libya’s Women’s Support and Empowerment Unit, will be holding a training of trainers on 19-21 June 2019  in Tunis.

This training aims at building the knowledge and capacity of the members of Libya’s National Women’s Machinery (NWM) to engage with the relevant international human rights mechanisms, including Treaty Bodies (CEDAW Committee) and Human Rights Council (Universal Periodic Report).
