    This publication provides practical and evidence-based guidance on how to improve women’s access to land as an essential element to achieve social and economic development and enjoyment of human rights, peace and stability in the specific context of the Muslim world. The challenges faced by women living in Muslim contexts do not substantially differ from those faced by women in other parts of the world: socially prescribed gender roles, unequal power dynamics, discriminatory family practices, unequal access to justice are the most common.

    A pesar del avance en los derechos de las mujeres, los derechos a la tierra y a la seguridad de su tenencia no son disfrutados igualitariamente por mujeres y hombres en muchas partes del mundo. Esto vulnera los derechos humanos internacionales, ejerciendo asimismo un impacto negativo sobre los hogares y la economía. Los temas de género referidos a la tierra son complicados. Involucran territorios sociales y culturales sensibles y desafían estructuras de poder profundamente enraizadas.

Lorsqu’elles touchent à la terre, les questions d’égalité des sexes deviennent plus complexes.
