Since 2016, a new generation of feminist actors has emerged in the civil society landscape of Azerbaijan. These actors primarily use social media to communicate the essence of feminism, discuss gender issues openly, promote gender equality and women empowerment, and denounce harmful cultural practices that impede the advancement of gender equality in the country.
This report, produced within the framework of the EU-funded project ‘Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility – Regional Actions’, was developed to assess the gender capacity of feminist actors in Azerbaijan and to craft strategies to strengthen their potential.
This website is managed by the EU-funded Regional Communication Programme for the Eastern Neighbourhood ('EU NEIGHBOURS east’), which complements and supports the communication of the Delegations of the European Union in the Eastern partner countries, and works under the guidance of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, and the European External Action Service. EU NEIGHBOURS east is implemented by a B&S Europe-led consortium. It is part of the larger Neighbourhood Communication Programme (2020-2024) for the EU's Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood, which also includes 'EU NEIGHBOURS south’ project that runs the EU Neighbours portal.
