Supporting young kurdish-iraqi people’s demands of a democratic, nondiscriminatory law system

After the dictatorship’s fall 2003 the kurdish region of Iraq got own government.
But the heredity of undemocratic structures and practices raises serious obstacles
för new generation’s – especially young women’s – participation in decision making.

The projects main goal is to strengthen our partner organization PAO:s long terms
capacity to encourage young people in the kurdish region to promote and demand
gender justice and real democracy. We will share to PAO:s staff, local leaders and
network experiences and audiovisual methods we have successfully used in
Sweden among migrants.

The final goal is to strengthen youngsters leadership and capacity to push
pressure on political decision makers to go forward modifying the current laws in
order to secure gender justice and democracy.
