Programme Analyst, Women, Peace and Security (For Lebanese Nationals ONLY)
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 has been working in Lebanon since 2015 to address the economic and social needs of refugees and host communities in close cooperation with the Government of Lebanon. UN Women Lebanon works on issues of women’s political participation, peace and security, economic empowerment and changing social norms around gender and masculinities.Although Lebanon stands out in the region for its cultural and religious diversity, exhibiting a complex multi-confessional society, the country continues to face challenges in dealing with the legacy of the civil war and in advancing towards a national reconciliation process that addresses the roots of continuous tensions. In November 2018, the Lebanese parliament passed the long-awaited Law 105 on Missing and Forcibly Disappeared Persons in Lebanon, which sets the basis for the establishment of an independent national commission to investigate the fate of the missing. The UN initiated a project that aims to support civil society, individual families, and national institutions in their efforts to seek the truth, foster collective remembrance and ultimately, move towards reconciliation around the legacy of the civil war. The project complements the Government of Lebanon’s National Action Plan (NAP) for the Implementation of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), which was endorsed in September 2019.Reporting to the Programme Coordinator and working in close cooperation with the Women Peace and Security Technical Programme Specialist, the Programme Analyst provides programme support to the effective management of UN Women Programmes in the Lebanon office by contributing in the programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation. The Programme Analyst supports the delivery of UN Women Programmes by analyzing results achieved during implementation and supporting appropriate application of systems and procedures. The Programme Analyst works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
