UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination and violence 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 supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programs and services needed to implement these standards.
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has made progress in creating preconditions for achieving gender equality by adopting relevant legislative and policy framework. However, women remain seriously under-represented in the country’s political institutions. In order to create a genuinely encouraging environment work on several fronts is required, including a sharper focus on implementation of all policy instruments and a corresponding shift of paradigm from equality of rights to equality of results, promotion of institutional processes that ensure women’s equal participation in political parties and parliament and consistent efforts to capacitate and include women in BiH in decision-making processes across board.
Women in Elections project is funded by the Government of Sweden and implemented by UNDP BiH and UN Women BiH, in partnership with BiH Agency for Gender Equality, BiH Central Election Commission, BiH Parliamentary Assembly - Committee on Gender Equality and selected local governments. The overall objective of this project to strengthen women’s leadership and participation in political life, vertically by making structural adjustments to accommodate greater numbers of women in politics, as well as horizontally by nourishing the next generation of women leaders in communities through tailored networking and capacity building initiatives and increased democratic participation and accountability.
One of the important elements of the said project is to support culture change within the political parties regarding gender equality, and the change of their internal rules, manifestos, policies and procedures to make them more gender sensitive and inclusive. UN Women is now seeking to engage an International expert to support facilitation of consultations with political parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
