Call for applications, Labcitoyen 2019, « Women’s rights, gender equality and citizenship” [fr]
In 2019, Le Labcitoyen will focus on Gender equality and Women’s rights. One year after the launch of the #Metoo movement, how far have we come in the fight for full recognition of gender equality?
Each year, the Labcitoyen gathers around sixty young citizens for one week to discuss major human rights issues through public conferences, workshops and debates.
Labcitoyen 2019 will address inequality, discrimination and violence against women in terms of their right to equal treatment as citizens. They will debate the issues surrounding the roles of power and domination in the structure of our societies.
The program of the week will focus on:
Women, Involvement in Politics and citizenship
Gender equality at work
Access to Education and knowledges
Sexual harassment and violence
Religion and women’s rights
60 young citizens from all around the world will meet at the Institut Français de Paris from June 30 to July 7, 2019.
