  • February 2019
    Cape Town
    Equality & Justice Forum for Commonwealth Parliamentarians
    This Forum will bring together parliamentarians and parliamentary officials from across the Commonwealth to engage in pan-Commonwealth peer learning and knowledge sharing on the topic of discriminatory law reform and to build a peer network. The forum will include presentations of a range of EJA-commissioned case studies of legislative reform initiatives undertaken across the Commonwealth (specifically Mozambique, Pakistan, Pacific Islands and Belize) and participants will have the opportunity to debate and discuss how these may be applicable to their own national context.
  • February 2019
    Namibia
    Civil Society National Country Convening
    The EJA will convene a national meeting of civil society LGBT and women’s rights organisations in Namibia in February 2019. The event aims to provide a space for diverse civil society organisations to come together to discuss and build consensus around intersectional discrimination and developing shared platforms for legal advocacy. Key issues relating to violence and discrimination against women and girls and LGBT individuals in Namibia - including gender based violence, femicide, child sexual exploitation, LGBT persecution, working with religious and tribal leaders and working with hard-to-reach and marginalised tribal groups – will be central to discussions on priorities and challenges to building an inclusive national equality movement.
