Thematic overview

Gender equality is one of the fundamental values of the European Union and the EU is a strong advocate of women’s and girls’ rights within Europe and globally.

In Libya, the EU promotes the inclusion of a gender perspective in all projects and finances projects that contribute to gender equality and empowerment of women and girls. EU support focuses on three key areas:

  1. Preventing and combating violence against women and girls;
  2. Promoting the economic and social rights of girls and women;
  3. Strengthening the voice and participation of women and girls in society.
