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 in Tunisia is currently focusing on three areas – Governance and Women’s Political Participation, Women’s Economic Empowerment, and Women's Peace and Security, and working with various stakeholders from Government, CSO, and Parliament to ensure gender is mainstreamed in public policies and strategies, legislative reforms and in political and economic participation processes. Since the 2011 revolution, UN Women Tunisia has supported the integration of equality provisions in the 2014 constitution and parity conditions in electoral laws. These efforts were... consolidated during this post-revolution process by the revision of different discriminatory laws, the establishment of high-level gender issues mechanisms such as the “Conseil des Pairs”, the adoption of the National Action Plan on 1325 and the integration of full parity into local elections law. Specifically, the office has supported research on the role of women in the prevention of violent extremism, the socio-economics factor and women’s engagement in violent extremism, and the link between public violence against women and violent extremism, all of which aim to inform decision-making on the issue of violent extremism as well as UNCT programming on this topic.
UN Women Libya has strengthened its programme presence in Libya, responding to the complex governance, humanitarian, development and security challenges through its triple mandate. UN Women’s Libya’s premise is that peacebuilding efforts, including political dialogues, conflict resolution, and humanitarian efforts will be more effective and have higher chances of success if they are inclusive, responding to gendered experiences, needs, capacities, and interests of the Libyan women across their diversities, this includes supporting women’s participation in peace processes at all levels. In addition, the programme is working to strengthen women’s political participation, ensure gender-responsive economic recovery, coordinate gender mainstreaming within the UNCT in Libya, integrate women’s needs into the current humanitarian response, and ensure their full participation in humanitarian consultations and processes. The program is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDFC) 2023-2025, UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2022-2025), UN Women Libya’s Strategic Note (SN 2023-2025) as well as the international conventions on women and human rights such as the Convention on Ending all forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Beijing Platform for Action
