ADVOCACY 

Objective (advocacy)

ABAAD uses policy dialogue and advocacy as a mechanism to promote an equitable and violence-free society. Knowing the pattern of power distribution in dialogue settings, ABAAD is committed to setting the foundations of dialogue and positive channels with community leaders, religious leaders, stakeholders, policy makers and the media with the aim of engaging them to achieve gender equality in our society. 

Brief Description

ABAAD believes that addressing GBV and promoting gender equality require the comprehensive and coordinated efforts of a number of actors, primarily governmental and non-governmental organizations. Additionally, ABAAD has a core role within local and international working groups and taskforces. Hence, since its establishment, ABAAD has been proactively engaged in fostering policy dialogue and development to address GBV and VAW. ABAAD uses advocacy tools to ensure the development, modification and implementation of policies against gender-based violence, to ensure that fair policies, laws and legislaion - especially during conflicts - protect women and girls.

ABAAD is the co-chair of the National Technical Task Force to End GBV against women and girls (chaired by the Ministry of Social Affairs) in Lebanon since 2012. ABAAD gained a special consultative status with ECOSOC in 2016. ABAAD is a member of many international, regional and local networks related to gender and GBV.
