UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
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.
UN Women has been working to ensure that efforts to prevent violent extremism (PVE) are inclusive and based on the promotion and protection of women’s human rights. Across Asia, violent extremism poses a direct threat to peace and security and inclusive development by fueling intolerance, forcibly displacing communities, exacerbating cycles of insecurity and armed conflict, exploiting existing inequalities, obstructing human rights, and challenging the rule of law. Crucially, this violence is highly gendered, with gender stereotypes used to radicalize and recruit individuals to join violent extremist causes, and women being especially affected by violent extremism.
Groundbreaking recent research into the link between gender and violent extremism by UN Women with Monash University found that hostile sexist attitudes toward women and support for violence against women are the factors most strongly associated with support for violent extremism in three countries in Asia – Indonesia, Bangladesh and the Philippines. Individuals who support violence against women are three times more likely to support violent extremism. Further, misogyny is integral to the ideology, political identity, and political economy of current violent extremist groups. Factors commonly used to explain support for violence extremism – such as religiosity, age, gender, level of education, employment, or geographic area – are not significantly associated with support for violent extremism.
To publicize these novel research findings, UN Women seeks to develop a creative and modern animated video to present the research findings to a broader audience.
