Between May 27th and June 1st 2013, the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin held a Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy and Human Rights “Towards a Global Human Rights Culture: The Need for a Collective Alliance in the Protection & Promotion of Human Rights”.

The conference provided the platform for activists, experts, academics and world leaders involved in the field of Human Rights to come together, create alliances, and better coordinate their activities, thus promoting better implementation and enforcement of Human Rights in a more effective nature.

One of the speakers at the Symposium was Ms. Meskerem Geset, Deputy Executive Director of Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa (IHRDA). Ms. Geset gave a Lecture on the topic of “Discrimination and Women’s Political Participation in Africa”.

“there is a legal equality, many African countries these days are acknowledging equal rights of women in political participation, not only in political participation but in every sphere of life, when we look at the laws, legal framework, good laws are available to facilitate equality. The problem would be when we come to the fact, are women in fact equally participating in politics, are they enabled, are they allowed to exercising their right in political life? That remains the question and a challenge”.
