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.
One of the key areas of UN Women work in Ukraine is Women, Peace and Security (WPS). In partnership with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, UN Women provides support to the national security sector institutions, including the Ministry of Interior, in implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and the subsequent resolutions on Women, Peace and Security. UN Women supports the state institutions with the implementation of the Revised National Action Plan for Implementation of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security for 2016-2020 (NAP 1325) , which represents the vision of the government for the gender-specific response to the conflict and its consequences. The NAP includes several areas of responsibility of the state institutions on mainstreaming gender into peace and security agenda, including: increasing women’s participation in peacebuilding processes and peacekeeping operations, conducting a gender assessment and providing gender-responsive services to people affected by conflict, combating conflict-related sexual violence, ensuring human rights and protection of women’s rights, among other priority actions.
The national security and defense sector is one of the priority national reforms under the?Strategy for Sustainable Development “Ukraine 2020”. The Government implements the National Security Strategy (2015-2020), adopted 26 May 2015, which aims to achieve the national security priorities, the reforms envisaged by the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and the Strategy for Sustainable Development “Ukraine 2020”. The Strategy includes the protection of human rights among its goals. On 20 May 2016, the President signed the Strategic Defense Bulletin, which serves as a roadmap for the reform, to change the policy, planning and resource management systems, and introduce a new division of authority, functions, duties and responsibilities in defense. The Government is committed to implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda as a part of the reform.
To ensure comprehensive gender mainstreaming, as well as to institutionalize the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda in the law enforcement reform, the Ministry of Interior has adopted the Plan on Actions for the Implementation of the UNSCR1325 for 2017-2020 with respective monitoring and evaluation framework.
