Assistance for the Development of a Common Working Platform for the Romanian Women’s NGOs

Duration


26-27.10.1998


Purpose


The project aimed to identify the priorities for action and the needs of the Romanian women’s NGOs, so that they become able to increase the impact of their activities on the Romanian society.


Activities


A two-day workshop-based seminar was initiated by ANFDUR (National Association of Romanian Women with a University Diploma) in partnership with FDC and CIIAN. The working methods were adapted to a multi-party mediation process. Members of the Romanian Mediators’ Network, together with FDC experts and the Canadian Institute for International and Applied Negotiation facilitated the dialogue during the seminar.


Results


    • A coalition of Romanian Women’s NGOs was created;
    • A set of priorities for action was established allowing the coalition to become actively involved on a permanent basis in solving the serious problems women and children are facing in Romania: domestic violence; poverty; inadequate education for children;
    • A strategy was drafted with regards to the co-operation and partnership of the coalition and the central/local public administration;
    • The role and potential of mass-media were identified with respect to the permanent, visible promotion of the coalition’s activities.
