On Monday 26 December 2011, the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights opened a training workshop titled ďWomen in Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law,Ē held at As-Salam restaurant in Gaza City.  This workshop is part of the ďEnhancing Legal Aid for Victims of Human Rights Violations in Gaza StripĒ project, implemented by Al Mezan with support from the UNDP/PAPP under the Rule of Law Program.

 

Ms Layal Qdeeh, a lawyer at Al Mezan, opened the workshop by welcoming the participants.  She asserted the importance of the workshopís targeting of new university graduates in order to enhance the culture of human rights in general and of womenís rights in particular.
