Women's Rights in Criminal Prosecution in Yemen

Sunday, 28 April, 2013

On April 28, 2014, the Yemen Polling Center (YPC) and ADALEH for Rights and Freedoms organized a workshop as part of a wider YPC and ADALEH project on Women's Rights in Criminal Prosecution, funded by the European Union.

As the project aims to conduct field surveys in female prisons as well as in police stations, the major objective of this workshop was to gather input for such surveys particularly with regard to knowledge of arrest procedures and the detention conditions of female prisoners, suspects, and pre-trial detainees.

Concurrently, this workshop aimed to communicate to participants the purpose of this action and their specific involvement, thus contributing to the establishment of first contacts between the various stakeholders and eliciting possibilities for and obstacles to future cooperation.
