Study 'Claiming back civic space'

In a wide diversity of countries across the globe the space available for civil society, activists and citizens has been under attack over the past decade. Several organisations (e.a. UN, OECD, Civicus, …) confirm a recent acceleration of the trend of ‘closing’ or ‘shrinking’ civic space.

E-tutorial ‘Body & Rights’

E-tutorial ‘Body & Rights’​

Body & Right is a free e-tutorial on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for stakeholders of Belgium's international cooperation. The e-tutorial is an initiative of the platform BeCause Health, together with DGD, the Institute of Tropical Medicine, ICRH/UGent, Enabel and Sensoa. The latter developed the e-tutorial, which has been updated in 2021. Through short modules with videos, fact sheets and multiple choice questions, you get an introduction to various topics such as safe motherhood, HIV, STIs, family planning, abortion, sexual violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation and the rights of adolescents and sexual minorities.

Signpost pages allow to quickly find relevant databases, international agreements and concrete guidelines per theme. Those who complete all modules receive a certificate that is recognized by the Belgian Development Cooperation. The e-tutorial was updated in 2021, with new videos in which diplomats, Enabel staff and NGO collaborators share their experiences on how to get and keep sexual and reproductive health and rights on the agenda, how to take into account cultural differences and how Belgium assumes its role as promoter of sexual and reproductive rights at the international level. The e-tutorial is available in Dutch, French and English. Body&Rights lends itself both as an introductory course and as an information hub on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Already 1500 people have used this e-learning, 600 users went through the full programme and obtained a certificate.

How we work together to eliminate poverty

How we work together to eliminate poverty?

You have doubtless already come across the concept of development cooperation. You might have already made a donation to a good cause. But do you know what it all means? What development cooperation means for Belgium is that we are striving to bring about a world without poverty, working for peace and security, and trying to ensure equal opportunities for every individual. Whether we are signing contracts with developing countries, sending emergency aid after a disaster or backing organisations on the ground, Belgian development cooperation wants to give people chances to improve their living conditions.

Our country is a serious donor, making Belgium one of the most generous countries in Europe. In this accessible brochure, you will discover how Belgium is working to eliminate poverty worldwide.
