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.
The Project “Enhancing Access to Justice for Women in Asia and the Pacific: Bridging the gap between formal and informal systems through women’s empowerment” is a five-year programme which implementation started in the course of 2018 thanks to the generous support of the Government of Sweden
The overall goal of the project is to enhance access to justice for women in formal and informal systems in Asia and the Pacific, bridging the gap between these systems through women’s empowerment and reduction of gender biases. In realizing this goal, UN Women will focus on achieving the following outputs (1) Domestic laws adopted and court decisions are consistent with international human rights law and standards, including CEDAW (2) Gender discriminatory attitudes and stereotyped behaviours towards women by formal and informal justice providers are addressed (3) Grassroots women’s organizations and community based women’s organizations are empowered and well-positioned to document, monitor, liaise and facilitate interactions with formal and informal justice providers, and their resilience is enhanced to build a just and sustainable future.
The project will be implemented in the sub-regional level: South East Asia, South Asia and the Pacific Islands with a specific focus on the following countries: Indonesia, Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste and the Pacific Island countries.
The project will be jointly implemented by UN Women (Regional Office for Asia Pacific), OHCHR and the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), with UN Women as the managing agency.
