The overall purpose of this project, funded by Consulate General of Sweden in Istanbul,  is empowering women in local governments and in local civil society. The project activities are designed to (1) analyse the influence of women in local leadership positions on quantity and quality of municipal social services targeting women, and (2) raise awareness on local women leadership in empowering women with particular reference to how it can effectively be used to proliferate municipal social services that facilitate participation of women in general in economic and public life.

To put it in a policy context, the objectives are designed within the framework of the UNDP’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 namely “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”. More specifically, the activities refer to the sub-goal 5.5. “Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life”.
