Asia-Pacific Regional Feminist Legal Theory and Practice (FLTP) Training

Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) invites applications from women human rights advocates to the Asia-Pacific Regional Feminist Legal Theory and Practice (FLTP) Training, which will be held in Penang, Malaysia, from 17-21 June 2019.

The FLTP training has been one of the core capacity building activities of APWLD that has now grown into a dynamic program that offers a unique model in the region. The FLTP framework has feminism as its core and human rights as its foundation.  It enables participants to use feminist analysis and perspectives in legal practice and legal activism.

The training seeks to challenge the traditional notion that law is a neutral, objective and rational set of rules, unaffected by the perspective of those who wield power in societies.  Participants shall address the social, cultural and political contexts that shape the legal system.  Given that law (as a culture, system and as an institution) is a reality that women face and engage with, it is essential for women’s rights activists to explore how law can be utilised to transform women’s lives. During the course participants apply the principles to a law, policy or practice limiting women’s human rights and are encouraged to develop strategies to change the practice.
