|UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
UN Women is mandated by the UN Security Council to support UN system-wide coordination on women, peace and security, and to this end UN Women has been working with governments, UN partners and civil society throughout the region to support women’s participation and influence at all levels of decision-making to prevent and resolve conflicts. UN Women has worked closely, and continues to work, with a number of governments in the region to develop their national action plans on UN SCr 1325 and its subsequent resolutions. Complementing this is work with national actors to support women’s engagement in peace-making, peacekeeping, recovery and prevention of violent extremism (PVE) throughout the region.
To this end UN Women is implementing two projects to further regional action on women, peace and security. The first aims to build women’s engagement in peace processes – with a specific focus on mediation. Through it, UN Women seeks to provide high quality expertise on inclusion and transition processes to mediation teams throughout the region, while also identifying and facilitating opportunities for women’s real-time engagement in mediation process. A second project seeks to build an evidence base around issues of preventing violent extremism, gender equality and masculinities across North Africa.
