The FIIAPP continues to support the “Living Together Without Discrimination” project, which guarantees the gender perspective throughout the intervention
The “Living Together Without Discrimination” project, financed by the European Union Trust Fund, has examined the possible situations of vulnerability faced by migrants, paying special attention to the situation of women and girls.
Since 2018, the FIIAPP has been managing this project in Morocco, aiming to prevent and combat racial and/or ethnic discrimination, racism and xenophobia, with a gender perspective. This is a much-needed approach, as it contributes to a better understanding and highlighting of situations of inequality between men and women, as well as how different forms of discrimination interact.
In this regard, it is fundamental to understand and raise awareness of the way in which people can suffer discriminatory treatment, which, in many cases, is due to a combination of several reasons. A recurring example, for example, is that a person, simply for being a woman, from a racial minority, immigrant and also in an irregular situation, may suffer unequal treatment with a multiplier effect. This phenomenon is known by the term of intersectional discrimination and allows a structural and multiple analysis of its effects on people.
The fight for equality between men and women has been going on for a long time and is a process that must be developed in the long term. In this sense, the FIIAPP maintains its commitment to continue improving decision-making processes that help guarantee the incorporation of a gender perspective in the project.
To date, the FIIAPP has carried out a gender diagnosis through which the inequalities between men and women have been analysed in all the processes and decision-making levels of the project. As a result of this work, the project has launched a Gender Action Plan, which includes different actions aimed at guaranteeing the inclusion of a gender perspective. Capacity building, the creation of monitoring and evaluation tools, the creation of reliable data broken down by sex, or the generation of strong alliances with key agents, are some examples that are being developed together with Moroccan public institutions and social agents.
