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 center of all its efforts, UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women plays an innovative and catalytic role in the State of Palestine since its inception in 1997 (as UNIFEM). UN Women Palestine Office focuses its activities on one overarching goal, namely, to support the implementation at the national level of existing international commitments to advance gender equality in line with the national priorities. In support of this goal, and thoroughly taking into consideration the specificities of the Palestinian context, UN Women concentrates its efforts and interventions toward the realization of following strategic goals: Mainstreaming gender in governance, peace and security; Supporting women's economic security and rights; and Promoting women’s rights and protection against violence.
In line with the Palestinian Government’s commitment to achieve gender equality and to combat Violence Against Women (VAW), and in full partnership with the Justice and Security Sectors, including the Public Prosecution (PP), the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP), the High Judicial Council (HJC) and the Supreme Judge Department (SJD), UN Women, through its joint programme with UNDP and UNICEF- “Promoting the Rule of Law in Palestine- SAWASYA II” is supporting the Justice and Security institutes to mainstream gender into their procedures and policies, and develop and provide gender responsive services to women victims and survivors of violence, through providing institutional capacity building and policy level interventions, amongst others.
In February 2017, the PCP with the support of UN Women SAWASYA I programme has launched its first Gender Strategy for the years 2017-2023. The strategy is built on five strategic goals, including: mainstreaming gender in the PCP; building police capacities in the field of gender, including leadership of female police officers; empowering the PCP from a gender perspective; integrating gender issues into the PCP policies and work mechanisms; and strengthening partnerships with institutions supporting gender issues. Since then, UN Women within SAWASYA programme has been supporting the implementation of the strategy in a coordinated manner with other national and international stakeholders in the security sector. In 2020, with the support of SAWASYA programme, the police have conducted a mid- term review of the PCP gender strategy, with the aim of documenting and tracking progress in the implementation of the strategy, and identifying challenges. Based on the findings, a three-years’ work plan was developed. The plan focuses on different angles, including amongst others, the investment in the capacities of female police officers, to enable them taking leading roles within their institute.
Against this backdrop, UN Women within Sawasya programme and in line with the PCP gender strategy’s workplan and priorities, plans to contract an expert in the field of leadership to enhance the leadership capacity of female police officers. This is a cross cutting intervention in police;s work plan and priorities, that serves and contributes to the other objectives.
