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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women plays an innovative and catalytic role in the State of Palestine since its inception in 1997 (As UNIFEM). UN Women Palestine Office focuses its activities on one overarching goal, namely, to support the implementation at the national level of existing international commitments to advance gender equality in line with the national priorities. In support of this goal, and thoroughly taking into consideration the specificities of the Palestinian context, UN Women concentrates its efforts and interventions toward the realization of following strategic goals: Mainstreaming gender in governance, peace, and security; Supporting women's economic security and rights; and Promoting women’s rights and protection against violence.
In line with the Palestinian Government’s commitment to achieve gender equality and to fight Violence Against Women (VAW), and in full partnership with the Justice and Security Sectors, including the Public Prosecution (PP), the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP), the High Judicial Council (HJC) and the Supreme Judge Department (SJD), UN Women, within its joint programme with UNDP and UNICEF- “Promoting the Rule of Law in Palestine- SAWASYA II” is supporting the Justice and Security institutes to mainstream gender into their procedures and policies, and develop and provide gender responsive services to women victims and survivors of violence, through providing institutional capacity building and policy level interventions amongst others.
The Family Protection Unit (FPU) was established by the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP) in 2008 as the Specialized Unit in charge of cases related to family violence, including the protection of victims, and the interface with the Public Prosecution and other stakeholders within the Justice and Security sectors. Since then, the Unit has been expanded to the 11 governorates in the West Bank, its scope has been widened to include juvenile cases as well, and its character has been altered from a Unit to a Department. More specifically, the Family and Juvenile Protection Department, (FJPD) as the first responder, manages complex interventions including responding to incidents of violence, supporting victims in filing complaints, ensuring their protection and access to the justice process, collecting evidence and support appropriate investigations to ensure perpetrators are brought before justice. It also leads prevention awareness-raising activities on regular basis throughout the Palestinian communities. Moreover, the Police work on cases of violence against women has been strengthened with the establishment of the One-Stop-Centre, the first of its kind in the country, in 2017, to provide multi sectoral services to women and children victims and survivors of violence, including juveniles.
Against this backdrop, and acknowledging the importance of responsive facilities to enhance women’s and children’s access to justice and protection, by maintaining privacy and confidentiality of cases, and dignity of survivors, UN Women is seeking to recruit a national consultant to conduct a facility assessment to the PCP premises in the West Bank districts with focus on the FPJD, with the aim of improving the gender responsiveness of the Police facilities, especially for women and children victims and survivors of violence.
