National FLTPs 2021

This year the Feminist Law and Practice Programme plans to pursue the potential of National FLTPs to help strengthen capacities in feminist practice and legal strategising that is responsive to the context, issues and needs of movements at the local and national level. 

APWLD will provide a small sub-grant support (US$8,000-10,000 per organisation) to 4-5 organisations to carry out the national FLTP training.  Each partner organisation is expected to organise a national FLTP training in the period of July – November 2021, and collectively share the learnings and new strategies in December 2021.  APWLD will provide a module for designing the national FLTP training and help national partners reach out to the FLTP trainers as well. 

The national-level FLTP Trainings have the following objectives:  

  • To build the capacity to identify, analyse and scrutinise the discriminatory national laws and policies from a feminist and human rights perspectives;
  • To develop feminist legal knowledge tools and strategies to support women’s human rights defenders at the national level;
