Stefanus Alliance International, with support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in cooperation with the Danish Institute for Human Rights and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, has been implementing a three-year project to explore regional issues in the intersection of freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 on achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.
As part of this project, Stefanus organized several two-day regional workshops, grouped into four regions: Caucasus/Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa, and South/South-East Asia. During these workshops, participants from the respective regions analyze challenges related to FORB and gender equality, anchored within the SDG agenda, and point to indicative examples of possible future initiatives on FoRB and gender equality in relation to these.
