Who We Are
KVINFO's program i Mellemøsten og Nordafrika er støttet af Dansk-Arabisk Partnerskabsprogram under Udenrigsministeriet (tidligere Det Arabiske Initiativ).
KVINFO’s Middle East and North Africa department is a part of KVINFO, the Danish Centre for Gender, Equality and Ethnicity. The key role of KVINFO is to initiate research and disseminate information and findings and to contribute to the development of an equal society in Denmark and internationally.
The Middle East and North Africa department has been carrying our partnership projects in the Middle East and North Africa region since 2007. The department is based in Copenhagen, but has offices in Amman in Jordan and Tunis in Tunisia.
The activities carried out by the department are currently financed by the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
