The Urban Training and Studies Institute- UTI was established via cooperation between the Housing and Building National Research Centre - HBRC in Cairo and the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies- IHS in Rotterdam within the framework of the development cooperation between the Governments of the Netherlands and Egypt.

UTI was officially founded as a result of a second phase of the Egyptian-Dutch cooperation which started in December 1997. Through this cooperation technical and managerial assistance were provided by the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) from Rotterdam and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC).

The assistance provided focused first on capacity and institution building and human resources development which were required for UTI establishment.

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.
