The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor has been accredited by the International Youth Federation (IYF) for its youth-centered projects and human rights work across the MENA region and Europe, providing advocacy, support and guidance to youth.
"The accreditation status clearly reflects Euro-Med Monitor's solid commitment and team's dedication to supporting youth empowerment to achieve sustainable, better and empowered youth by 2030," says IYF.
Euro-Med Monitor has formed partnerships with many human rights groups, universities and legal centers, and has been able to achieve well-earned successes in many projects aimed particularly at youth development and empowerment of women as well. Such projects include We Are Not Numbers, a storytelling platform for refugee youth in the Palestinian territories and Lebanon; Training-Mentorship-Production, a youth employment project for university students and recent graduates in the field of human rights; Women Leadership Incubator, a project for women empowerment in marginal areas; Summer School on Armed Conflict and Human Rights, a project that provides theoretical and practical training in IHL concepts, moot trials, and concepts of occupation and internal armed conflict, among others.
"Thanks to the sincere dedication of Euro-Med Monitor's youth staff and volunteers, the organization has grown in scope and size, maintaining an always-improving quality for the work produced" says Sandra Owen, spokeswoman for Euro-Med Monitor
