Monitoring and Reporting Analyst, Women, Peace and Security in Bangladesh
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.
Building on over fifteen years of experience in the area of women, peace and security, including conflict prevention and resolution, peacebuilding, security sector reform and access to justice, UN Women Asia Pacific Regional Office has been working to ensure a gender sensitive and gender responsive approach to understanding and preventing violent extremism at the regional level. UN Women’s approach to preventing radicalization and violent extremism is firmly based on the empowerment of women to build resilient, cohesive and peaceful communities – with particular attention to those that are most marginalized and in particularly vulnerable situations. Taking especially into consideration the growing threat of violent extremism in Asia and the Pacific, including the increasing trend of domestic violent incidents, UN Women with the support of the government of Japan is seeking to expand its efforts in the area of prevention of radicalization and violent
extremism through empowered women’s influence in building resilient communities, with regional components and particular country focus in Indonesia and Bangladesh.
