NOVEMBER COURSE

The course program in November 2020 is designed for emerging Muslim activists who want to bring positive changes in women rights in their countries. This course is for those who want to improve, use, and encourage the adoption of legislation on domestic violence in their countries.  Using the experience of Malaysian’s civil society in campaigning for domestic violence legislation, this course will help the participants identify challenges, opportunities, and effective strategies to tackle domestic violence in their communities.

The workshop will be facilitated and attended by prominent women rights activists in Malaysia.

Participants are expected to read materials given by the facilitator and submit weekly assignments. At the end of the course, the participants are expected to produce a project plan that they can implement to tackle issues of domestic violence in their countries.
