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; the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development; human rights; as well as humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
“Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” is a Regional Programme under the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia, which aims to support elimination of discrimination and violence against women and girls in Turkey and the Western Balkans, including Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo (All references to Kosovo on this document shall be understood to be in full compliance with UN Security Council Resolution 1244 (1999)) and Serbia. The programme is anchored in the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Istanbul Convention, and in alignment with European Union accession standards.
The programme supports the development of an enabling legislative and policy environment on eliminating violence against women and all forms of discrimination; promotes favorable social norms and attitudes to prevent gender discrimination and violence against women; and pursues empowering women and girls (including those from disadvantaged groups) who have experienced discrimination or violence to advocate for and use available, accessible, and quality services.
Communications is a key component of UN Women’s work in the region and constitutes a vehicle for ensuring visibility for successful UN Women initiatives, results and programmes, including the regional “Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” programme, as well as for raising awareness about key issues of gender equality and women’s empowerment. Effective communications also contribute to mobilizing resources as donors would like to see value for money.
Within this scope, UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia and the Regional “Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” Programme regularly develop impact stories, news materials, and other web-related information and web projects to be featured on the regional UN Women Europe and Central Asia website to showcase UN Women initiatives and impact on women’s and girl’s lives. The Regional Programme also produces Newsletters throughout the year to inform stakeholders of Programme related initiatives.
