The Majalat project, which is co-financed by the European Union and aimed at creating and promoting spaces for meetings and constructive dialogue between civil society in the southern Mediterranean and the EU, is launching its subsidized activities in Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan and Lebanon.

Five organizations from these countries, beneficiaries of Majalat’s micro-financing, will organize national workshops on the project’s themes. These workshops will be held from 18 September 18 to 15 December.

As a Majalat partner, SOLIDAR will supervise the implementation and coordination of these activities.

“Majalat” is a regional initiative supported and financed by the European Commission. This unique initiative led by civil society organisations from the North and South of the Mediterranean aims to build a continuous exchange between the EU and Civil Society from ten countries from the South of the Mediterranean in continuity with previous EU structured dialogues. Each year, through an annual cycle of activities, civil society organisations will gather to discuss and exchange on 5 themes that are central for the relations between the EU and countries in the region (Governance and Rule of Law, security and countering violence, migration, economic and social dialogue, social and climate justice). The results of these discussions will be brought from the field into structured (policy) dialogues with the European Union.
