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, 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.
Safe & Fair: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (2018/2022) (“Safe and Fair”), is part of the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls, a global, multi-year initiative between the European Union and United Nations. Safe & Fair is implemented through a partnership between the ILO and UN Women with the overriding objective of ensuring that labour migration is safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region. The project aims to address women migrant workers’ vulnerabilities to violence and trafficking, strengthen rights-based and gender-responsive approaches to violence against women and labour migration governance and support access to essential services.
Women are increasingly migrating for work within the ASEAN region, and today close to half of all migrant workers in the region are women. However, women have fewer options than men for regular migration, and are often channeled into lower paid informal sector work with few if any labour protections. Due to gender inequalities and discrimination, women are particularly vulnerable to violence and trafficking, and services for survivors of violence often do not meet their needs.
Safe & Fair will be implemented in the ASEAN region, in countries of origin (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Vietnam) and countries of destination (Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand), working with women migrant workers, ASEAN Member States’ government authorities, ASEAN institutions, and worker, employer, civil society and community-based organizations.
Safe & Fair works in close cooperation with governments and social partners to achieve three inter-linking specific objectives: (1) Women migrant workers are better protected by gender-sensitive labour migration governance frameworks; (2) Women migrant workers are less vulnerable to violence and trafficking and benefit from coordinated responsive quality services; and (3) Data, knowledge and attitudes on the rights and contributions of women migrant workers are improved.
The Programme Assistant works with and provides support to the members of the Programme Team in the development and implementation of the Joint ILO- UN Women Project Safe & Fair: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region. The Programme Assistant will provide support and assistance to the team to ensure effective programme implementation in line with UN Women rules and regulations and in coordination with ILO.
Under the guidance and supervision of the Programme Analyst, the Administrative Assistant supports the project operations by performing a variety of standard administrative processes ensuring high quality and accuracy of work. The Administrative Assistant promotes a client, quality and results-oriented approach.
The Programme Assistant works in close collaboration with the Safe and Fair project staff and the Operations team to ensure consistent service delivery including UN Women and ILO Country and Regional Offices.
