Media Development 2018-4

Engaging with the Digital

Digital communications are everywhere and yet policymakers are still struggling to respond with appropriate structures and governance models. It's necessary to move beyond celebrating greater accessibility and affordability in order to tackle fundamental questions about ownership and regulation as well as ethical questions about privacy, security and surveillance.

Advancing Freedom of Expression for Women in Palestine

Palestinian women are disproportionately affected by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its social, political and economic consequences. In addition, a patriarchal social climate in Palestine often deprives them of their rights, including their right to freedom of expression and communication.

In this context, this project, implemented by WACC partner Community Media Centre (CMC) seeks to enhance young women’s participation in the Gaza Strip by strengthening their capacities to express their views and practice their right to freedom of expression. It also seeks to promote young women's role in civic engagement and social responsibility. To this end, CMC is implementing activities in capacity building, community awareness raising, and advocacy and mobilization. The project’s direct beneficiaries will be a group of 20 young women activists who will benefit from technical training on communication and media to enable them to produce media materials. Workshops will be accompanied by a social media campaign and will culminate in a conference on women’s right to freedom of expression to which local officials and decision-makers will be invited.
