United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Five-Year Agenda

Thanks to Vinny Smith from Development Initiatives for sending me the news of the UN Secretary-General’s new 5 year action plan.  We welcome these initiatives very warmly.

V. WORKING WITH AND FOR WOMEN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

1. Deepen the UN campaign to end violence against women by enhancing support for countries to adopt legislation that criminalizes violence against women and provides reparations and remedies to victims, provide women with access to justice and pursue and prosecute perpetrators of violence against women.

2. Promote women’s political participation worldwide by encouraging countries to adopt measures that guarantee women’s equal access to political leadership, managing elections to promote women’s engagement and building the capacity of women to be effective leaders. Place a special focus on the Secretary-General’s seven-point action plan on women’s participation in peacebuilding.

3. Develop an action agenda for ensuring the full participation of women in social and economic recovery through a multi-stakeholder partnership with government, the private sector and civil society. This should include recommendations on inheritance laws, wages, childcare, work-sharing and taxes.

  1. Hi Diana, your blogs interest me every time. I am very interested in this topic as I wish to work abroad helping victims of domestic abuse to gain well needed support.
    I wish to be able to advise those who are there to support about the impact of domestic abuse on the victim but also their children. I am an IDVA and have just completed a fantastic CAADA IDVA course. I would live to learn more and if you can, advise me on how I can look for/ get work abroad. I am going to be travelling to many countries across the world and would love to continue the work I do and hopefully make a difference to many more peoples lives and that of their children.
    Advising people on how best to support domestic abuse victims is a start to helping those in need to gain support and advise. I would appreciate any advice you have for me by email If you have the time.
    Thanks Rose.

  2. Sorry for the delay in replying. Why not get in touch with me by email? It might be worth looking at some of the organisations involved in Daphne funded projects in Europe?
