First Edition of the Egyptian Diaspora Forum – an Opportunity to Rebuild Hope and Celebrate Successes
HuMENA for Human Rights and Civic Engagement and Women for Justice are organizing the first edition of the Egyptian Diaspora Forum set to take place on December 5, 2022.
The Forum will bring together pro-democracy organizations, human rights organizations and activists, donor institutions, human rights defenders, experts, diaspora communities’ representatives, academics, advocates, research institutions, thought leaders and other actors, to exchange ideas and best practices on diaspora engagement in the processes of joint design, networking, capacity building, and access to justice.
The first edition, which will be held under the theme “Building Hope”, aims to create an opportunity for communication between the different components of diaspora communities and to bridge the gap between effective institutions, individuals and stakeholders.
This forum will also be a space to learn about success stories from the Syrian, Lebanese and Iranian diaspora, who have long experience in building joint action planning, lobbying, effective advocacy and building transnational advocacy networks.
The Egyptian Diaspora Forum is an opportunity to rebuild hope and celebrate the successes of Egyptian diaspora communities and individuals, as well as to reflect on the serious challenges in an increasingly complicated and complex scene for activists, women, organizations and societies as well as to create an opportunity for connecting and communication between the different components of the Egyptian diaspora; as well as to explore possibilities for cooperation, coordination and networking between them.
The forum sessions will be either public interactive sessions, or closed sessions that can be attended only by pre-registration and direct invitations, and will be limited to activists, human rights defenders, international and regional organizations and various donor institutions.
Sessions will also be held in Arabic and interpreted simultaneously into English; with the possibility of adding other languages in response to demand.
The Egyptian Diaspora Forum will be a space for participants to share ideas about diaspora, promote their work in support of democracy, human rights, peacebuilding and development, highlight their achievements, aspirations, and challenges, and most importantly, to think collectively on how together and hand in hand, this vital work will be developed.
