UN Women intervenes globally to support governments, national institutions, UN agencies and civil society organizations in the conceptualization, planning and implementation of policies and interventions supporting women’s economic empowerment and equality between women and men.
Globally, women’s leadership and political participation are restricted. Women are underrepresented as voters, as well as in leading positions, whether in elected office, the civil service, the private sector or academia. This occurs despite their proven abilities as leaders and agents of change, and their right to participate equally in democratic governance. Women face several obstacles to participating in political life. Structural barriers through discriminatory laws and institutions that still limit women’s options to run for office. Capacity gaps mean women are less likely than men to have the education, contacts and resources needed to become effective leaders.
Numerous research studies on peacebuilding in Libya express a critical concern about the lack of data, including gender- and age-disaggregated data on conflict and violence, among other categories. Most data available today is based on surveys, which, while valuable, show only an incomplete picture of the economic situation of Libyan women and barely reflects the situation.
In response to a lack of data on the subject of the experiences of young women in peacebuilding in Libya, UN Women together with GPPAC carried out surveys on people’s experiences of peacebuilding Libya, disaggregated by age and gender. The research so far incorporates key findings from a survey reaching 160 Libyans involved in peacebuilding. It documents and makes visible the lived experiences of Libyans within peacebuilding processes and activities, which only about half feel reflects their views and priorities.
UN Women is recruiting a research consultant to concretize the findings from the surveys into a publishable research paper on how Libyans across genders, age groups and geographic locations are participating while determining what the various barriers and enablers of that participation are, in particular as they pertain to accessibility and meaningful inclusion in decision-making. Centering the expertise and ownership of women and youth, the paper will outline Libyans perspectives, challenges and ideas for ways to enhance their inclusion and leadership and identifies key recommendations and ways forward.
Duties and Responsibilities
UN Women is looking to recruit a researcher with expertise in qualitative research to concretize the findings for a publishable research paper in English on the experiences of youth involvement in peacebuilding in Libya. The data collection and analysis process has been concluded. The findings are currently in rough draft format and need to be concretized to the Libyan context and reviewed for publication.
Under the guidance of the WPS Programme Officer and overall supervision of the Head of Programmes, the consultant will be responsible for the following tasks:

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits employ, trains, compensates and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity, and organizational need.
