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.

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 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 launched a regional program « Women, Peace and Security in the Arab States » in partnership with the Government of Finland. This program aims to leverage the global normative framework on Women, Peace and Security to address the challenges of women’s rights and gender equality in the region and in countries affected by crisis and transition. To this end, the program focuses on Tunisia as a country in transition.

This program aims to contribute to the creation of an environment conducive to the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda set forth in the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), by addressing the social norms through strong accountability frameworks and the pursuit of evidence-based advocacy.

More specifically, the program aims to support relevant national ministries and / or bodies in implementing the National Action Plan on UNSCR1325, which was launched on 4 July 2018 and adopted on 8/8/2018.

Over the past 16 years, eight resolutions on « Women, Peace and Security » (WPS) have been adopted by the United Nations Security Council.

These resolutions reflect the will of the international community to promote inclusive peace processes and its commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment in achieving lasting peace and international security. This is achieved through more equitable representation of women and men in peace processes, as well as improving the physical and legal protection of women and girls.

The main priorities of UNSCR 1325 are women’s participation in peace negotiation efforts, access to justice for violations of women’s human rights, and recognition of women’s rights and priorities in transitions and post-conflict contexts as well as the consolidation and maintenance of peace.

UN Women Tunisia is committed to supporting the Tunisian government to implement the National Action Plan (NAP) of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.

UN Women will continue to provide the Tunisian government with a range of expertise on capacity building, the provision of the necessary information and knowledge, technical advice and exchange of good practices with other countries. UN Women will also facilitate the process of implementing the Tunisian National Plan for Security Council Resolution 1325 through robust and high-level technical support.

The monitoring of the effective implementation of NAP-SCR1325 is the responsibility of the Steering Committee. The steering committee is made up of government representatives.
