Migration and Asylum

Restrictive migration policies and inadequate legislative protection across the Euro-Med (and beyond) mean that asylum seekers, migrants, and refugees face unique challenges on the move and in their host countries.

Women's Rights and Gender Justice


EuroMed Rights strives to actively promote the rights of women, their participation in public life, as well as gender equality in the Euro-Med region.

Accountability, Justice and Space for Civil Society

In recent years, many governments across the Euro-Mediterranean region have tended to adopt ever more repressive measures and policies to curtail civil society activism and muzzle critical voices.

Democracy and Freedoms

The status of democracy and fundamental freedoms in the Euro-Mediterranean region has continued to backslide or remained at a negative status quo over the past few years.  

Economic and Social Rights

This theme is covered by a specific regional programme, building on past experiences, e.g. in Tunisia, and putting social justice concerns at the heart of EuroMed Rights’ work
