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 centre of all its efforts, the 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 is beginning a five-year initiative in 2018 in Asia funded by the EU-UN global Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence against Women, titled “Safe and Fair: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region”.
Implemented through a partnership between the ILO and UN Women, “Safe and Fair” will address women migrant workers’ vulnerabilities to violence, trafficking and labour exploitation, with financial support of the European Union. It will include project implementation in 8 ASEAN countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
The ‘Safe and Fair’ project will contribute to making labour migration safer for all women migrants in the ASEAN region, by: enhancing protection of women migrant workers in the region, who tend to be most vulnerable to violence and trafficking throughout the migration cycle; strengthening capacities, providing information and knowledge to claim rights; supporting rights-based and gender-responsive approaches to violence against women policies and migration governance; and providing survivors of violence with improved quality support services. The project also aims to improve data and knowledge on the experiences of women migrant workers related to violence.
Reporting to and collaborating closely with the Ending Violence against Women (EVAW) Programme Manager in the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, the Programme Specialist exercises responsibility for planning, implementing, and managing UN Women interventions related to the ‘Safe and Fair’ project. She/he works in close collaboration with the UN Women management and operations team, UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors, UN agencies- especially ILO- and civil society to ensure successful UN Women programme implementation under the portfolio.
