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.
As the United Nations continues to convene talks in Geneva under the framework of Security Council resolution 2254 (2015), it recognizes the importance of a fully inclusive process to ensure that the voices and views of Syrian women are heard, consistent with the Geneva Communiqué of 30 June 2012 and Security Council Resolutions 2122 and 1325.
As part of these efforts, UN Women is working to support Syrian women’s engagement in peacemaking since 2013. One stream of this is a partnership with the Office of the Special Envoy for Syria, including support to Syrian women’s leadership and effective engagement in the political process through the Women’s Advisory Board (WAB). To complement this, UN Women is working to document women’s priorities for peace, and to build dialogue and trust across women’s groups, women leaders, and women’s rights actors operating inside and outside of Syria – seeking to create strategic alliances around key issues and processes that may shape the future of Syria. UN Women is also providing balanced gender analysis of the conflict and political process, and coordination with other actors supporting on gender equality and women’s rights in Syria. This work is done under two programmes: (1) “Supporting Syrian Women’s Engagement in the Syrian political process – Building a homegrown constituency for peace”, which is supported by the governments of Finland, the Netherlands, Norway; and (2) “Advancing Women’s Participation in the Syrian Political Process” funded by the European Union.
Reporting to the Programme Specialist, Women, Peace and Security, the Programme Analyst contributes to the effective management of the Syria programme by providing substantive inputs to programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation. The Programme Analyst guides and facilitates the delivery of the programme by monitoring results achieved during implementation and ensuring appropriate application of systems and procedures and develops enhancements if necessary. The Programme Analyst works in close collaboration with the programme team in Beirut, operations team in Cairo (Regional Office of the Arab States), UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society, ensuring the successful programme implementation.

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.
