Job ID/Title :UNWOMEN Programme Associate | Brand: UNWOMEN | Application Deadline :22-Jun-15 | Duty Station: Gaza

Languages Required :Arabic, English,
Duration of Initial Contract :     12 Months
Expected Duration of Assignment :     12 Months
  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 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.

A number of United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR)  call for equal and active representation of women at all decision-making levels in national, regional and international institutions and mechanisms for the prevention, management, and resolution of conflicts. They also call for the protection of the rights of women and children during armed conflict and attention to their special needs. In the oPt, UNSCRs on women’s peace and security are not being respected and specific systems to regularly monitor and report women’s rights violations Palestinian women are not available. Moreover, Palestinian women have been voiceless with very few women participating in peace talks or in the internal reconciliation committees thus leaving no space to integrate women’s concerns and priorities in achieving a Palestinian statehood.  To address the above and in alignment with UN Women’s development result framework Impact Area 4 “Women’s leadership in peace, security and humanitarian response”; UN Women had developed the Programme “Advancing the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in the oPT” (2014-2016), which received funding from the EU,  with the overall objective of contributing to the development of an enabling environment for women’s leadership and political participation in conflict resolution, state-building and peace processes in the oPt on the basis of UNSCR 1325.
Considering the  huge impact of the Israeli operation“ Protective Edge“ ( July 2014) on the lives and protection of Palestinians women and girls in the Gaza Strip;  in light of IASC Guidelines for Gender-based Violence (GBV) Interventions in Humanitarian Settings and the Protection Cluster Needs Analysis Framework (2014-2016) & Strategic Response Plan for 2014 Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC) which both identify GBV as a priority concern specifically with regards to “Lack of, or limited access to, services in response to GBV”; in alignment with UN Women strategic plan Outcome 3.2 “Specialized, quality, multi-sectoral survivors-based services available and accessible to women and girl victims of violence”; and aligning with the work of stakeholders within the GBV sub working group functioning under the UN inter-agency Gender Task Force (GTF), UN Women will implement the project “Improving Holistic Protection Services for Women and Girls in the Conflict Affected Context of the Gaza Strip” (2014-2015), which is funded by the Japanese Government, to provide holistic protection services to women and girls victims of gender based violence in Gaza with particular focus on women and girls IDPs and/or living in overcrowded houses.  Through the project, UN Women, in coordination with OCHA and the cluster system, will also capitalize on its innovative approach in including gender dimensions into humanitarian response in the Gaza Strip.

In this framework, UN Women Palestine country office would like to recruit a qualified Programme Associate to support the implementation of both programmes “Advancing the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in the oPT” and the project “Improving Holistic Protection Services for Women and Girls in the Conflict Affected Context of the Gaza Strip”.
