Fahmia Charafeddine

Abstract


The Lebanese Women’s Rights and the Nationality Law project is a joint project
between civil society and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). It is
implemented by the National Committee for the Follow up on Women’s Issues (CFUWI)and funded by UNDP. It aims at achieving equality between men and women in the field of citizenship. The project is not the first of its kind in Lebanon with respect to gender equality and citizenship, but it does present a new methodology to deal with this issue.
