The study visit took place in the framework of the G7 Deauville Partnership MENA Transition Fund regional project on “Promoting Women’s Participation in Parliaments and Policy-Making”. Study visits are a vehicle for promoting peer-to-peer policy dialogue and exchange of good practices between MENA and OECD practioners.

This study visit brought together members of parliament, parliamentary secretariat members, and local elected officials from Jordan and Morocco. The study visit focused on gender-sensitive law-making and the greater inclusion of women in public life.

The study visit was hosted by Italy – an OECD and G7 member country. The study visit took place in Rome and included site visits to Parliament, the Presidential Council of Ministers, Lazio Regional Council and Capitoline Hill. Delegates also had the opportunity to meet Italian officials committed to the gender equality agenda at the ministerial, parliamentary, regional, and local levels, as well as representatives from civil society.

The aim of the study visit was for delegates from Jordan and Morocco to observe the Italian experience regarding the promotion of women in political life, as well as the drafting, negotiation and implementation of gender-equality policies at all levels of government: national, regional and local. Meetings and discussions allowed delegates and Italian representatives to exchange practical information and views on similar reform processes and their application.
