Historique

 

I. Background:

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, the 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.

Building on twenty years of experience in the area of women, peace and security (WPS), including conflict prevention and resolution, peacebuilding, security sector reform and access to justice, UN Women has been working to ensure a gender sensitive and gender responsive approach to understanding and preventing violent extremism (PVE). UN Women’s approach to preventing radicalization and violent extremism is firmly based on the empowerment of women to build resilient, cohesive and peaceful communities – with particular attention to those that are most marginalized and in particularly vulnerable situations. Since 2017, UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) has been implementing the regional programme “Empowered Women, Peaceful Communities” with the generous support of the Government of Japan to prevent violent extremism and advance the WPS agenda by promoting women’s rights, empowerment, participation and leadership— both at country and regional level. It undertakes or coordinates regional research and data analysis; advises on norms, policies and strategies for achieving the internationally and regionally agreed goals related to PVE. It acts as a knowledge hub at the regional level, collecting evidence on progress and emerging issues and sharing knowledge on innovative approaches and lessons learned in PVE programme implementation. Please consult our webpage for more information on our work in this area. http://asiapacific.unwomen.org/en/focus-areas/peace-and-security/preventing-violent-extremism
