UN Women (the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of 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.
In Turkey, in line with its global Strategic Plan 2018-2021, UN Women works towards three overarching goals: 1) Women lead, participate in, and benefit equally from governance systems; 2) All women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence; 3) Women and girls contribute to and have greater influence in building sustainable peace and resilience and benefit equally from the prevention of natural disasters and conflicts and humanitarian action.
Towards these goals, UN Women implements programmes and projects that aim to advance gender equality, improve women’s access to opportunities, rights and services in political, social and economic life and combat gender stereotypes, discrimination and violence, as required by international and national legal and policy commitments. UN Women collaborates with numerous partners – central and local level government authorities, civil society organizations, including women’s organizations and platforms, academia, private sector companies, other UN agencies. It commits itself to the Leaving No One Behind principle, by supporting targeted actions to remove the obstacles that marginalized and vulnerable groups of women face in accessing their rights and to promote them as agents of change.
Globally and in Turkey, UN Women engages with and supports civil society organizations (CSOs), in particular women’s organizations, as key advocacy and knowledge partners, as well as implementing partners in operational activities in advancing women’s economic, political and social rights. UN Women’s work with civil society encompasses facilitating and expanding spaces for CSOs to come together for coordinated actions and to engage in dialogue with duty-bearers and decision-makers at local, national, regional and international levels, and in the context of inter-governmental processes. UN Women is focused on convening multi-stakeholder partnerships and engaging a wide variety of stakeholders, including men and boys and young people, to bring forth transformative change towards gender equality, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
Under this framework, UN Women will embark on a new three-year project ‘Strengthening civil society capacities and multi-stakeholder partnerships to advance women’s rights and gender equality in Turkey”, funded by the European Union. The Project aims to reduce gender inequalities by enhancing the ability of civil society organizations to be agents of transformative change towards gender equality and women’s rights.
Under this project UN Women will work with civil society actors as knowledge partners, implementing partners, and advocates for normative advancements and accountability, and will support civil society through convening and networking, knowledge exchange, capacity development, funding, including through its small grants mechanisms. The intervention will address the challenges faced by CSOs and the women’s movements, especially in the context and aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic which is expected to have adverse mid- and long-term impacts on the social and economic status of women. It will seek to foster strategic and innovative partnerships between organizations and individuals working to advance women’s empowerment with a wide range of stakeholders, including men and boys advocates, youth groups, academia, disability rights activists, climate justice activists and other key constituencies, as well as across generations and sectors.
Reporting to Programme Specialist (NOC), the Programme Analyst contributes to the effective management of the above project by providing substantive inputs to programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation. Programme Analyst will be mainly responsible for technical assistance, research and training related activities under the project and is expected to work closely with the other Programme Analyst responsible for capacity development and networking in the successful delivery of all outputs of the Project. Programme Analyst guides and facilitates the delivery of UN Women programmes by monitoring results achieved during implementation and ensuring appropriate application of systems and procedures and develops enhancements if necessary.
