North East Network

India

North East Network (NEN), is a women’s organisation established in 1995 during the mobilisation process for the Beijing Conference. Ever since its inception the organisation has been raising women’s rights issues, particularly within the developmental and political context of the North East region of India. In its early years the organization focused on empowerment and issues of health and livelihood. And from the beginning itself we took serious note on issues of violence that take place in conflict situations, and in the domestic sphere.

NEN has been in the forefront of organisations in the region that worked to change developmental discourse from a rights perspective and demanded women’s inclusion in all political and other decision making levels. Over the years, NEN stressed on good governance as a precondition for the enjoyment of human rights and also for addressing gender based discriminations and disparities.

NEN responds to specific needs of women in north east India such as gender budgetary allocations, strengthening support services for women affected by violence, and security of women in conflict areas through fact finding processes and advocacy with the government. In addition we organize trainings, workshops and publish materials for stakeholders to disseminate information related to conflict, peace and women.
