Paraguay: Political training school for women leaders earns award by the global network on electoral justice
The women’s training programme, led by the national Electoral Management Body in cooperation with International IDEA, earned an Honorable Mention in the Gender Equality category in the first edition of the Global Network on Electoral Justice Awards for meeting the main criterion of contributing to a concrete and measurable increase in gender parity in public life. The distinction will be presented during the Fifth Plenary Assembly of the Global Network on Electoral Justice, to be held from October 9 to 11 in Bali, Indonesia.
The Political Training School for Women Leaders is but one outcome of the cooperation partnership between the Institute’s Paraguay Programme and the EMB, the Superior Tribunal for Electoral Justice (TSJE, by its acronym in Spanish), and an integral component of the project “Consolidation of Paraguayan Democracy II” funded by the European Union. The School also received collaboration from the UNDP, the Ministry of Women, the Gender and Equity Commission of the Senate, and the Paraguayan Network of Municipal Women, a nationwide municipal women’s organization.
