As gender equality has constituted a pillars of AER’s action for several years, the Assembly of European Regions has joined forces with Mrs Lilia LABIDI, Tunisian Minister of Women’s Affairs, to offer AER’s experience to the Tunisian authorities. Together, we have decided to organise a training seminar for Tunisian female candidates.
In order to ensure that the principle of gender parity is fully respected in practice, this seminar aims to help Tunisian women fully and actively engage in the election campaigns and allow for them to share their experiences with their European counterparts.
What exactly does "gender parity" mean? How do you become a candidate? How do you develop a support base and networks? What challenges should you expect and how to overcome them? By finding answer to these questions, AER hopes to contribute to increasing Tunisian women's engagement in politics, but also to incite electors to seize the symbol of democracy that is the right to vote.
