UN Women Background:
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.
Unit/ Project Background:
UN Women in Turkey is working with national governments, UN agencies, local authorities and non-governmental organizations to empower refugee women and girls and improve their access to opportunities, rights and services, as required by international treaties and national legislation. UN Women concluded an assessment in six cities to determine the needs of refugee women and girls, their challenges in accessing services and the areas that need improvement. The assessment helped inform the development of the “Strengthening the Resilience of Syrian Women and Girls and Host Communities in Iraq, Jordan and Turkey”, referred as Refugee and Response Programme (RRP), an integrated programme that targets both displaced Syrian women and girls and host-country nationals across Iraq, Jordan and Turkey. The programme works through a multi-dimensional strategy that: i) enables women’s empowerment through addressing issues of economic vulnerability and violence by increased access to recovery and livelihood opportunities, paired with comprehensive protection services and support to national justice structures to promote accountability for violence against women, and ii) promotes a culture of peace and co-existence through supporting women to lead and engage in peacebuilding, reconciliation and conflict prevention.
The partners for programme implementation in Turkey are the Municipality of Gaziantep, International Labour Organisation (ILO) and Association for Solidarity with Asylum Seekers and Migrants (ASAM). The programme offers a two-tier approach that combines livelihoods and referral support at the SADA Women-Only Center in Gaziantep, with interventions aiming at increasing women’s participation in decision-making mechanisms and creating social dialogue between women and girls from refugee and host communities. The implementation of the project started in February 2017 and will last until the end of January 2020.
