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 maintains a large presence throughout Europe and Central Asia region, covering 14 countries with programme presence in Kosovo (under UN Security Council Resolution 1244).
In Kosovo, UN Women within the framework of the United Nations entities in Kosovo working on police, justice and corrections issues are strengthening their support to Kosovo’s institutions through a joint multi-year programme, with a view to optimizing United Nations’ resources and more broadly to provide more integrated, robust, relevant, and coordinated rule of law support to the authorities of Kosovo.
The overall objective of the joint United Nations strategy in this regard is to: a) strengthen access to and the responsiveness of justice and security institutions; b) build citizen trust in the Kosovo justice system throughout Kosovo; c) promote social cohesion and economic prosperity; and d) integrate the Women, Peace and Security agenda into justice and security efforts.
The UN system in Kosovo is comprised of UNMIK and the UN Kosovo Team (19 UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes). They operate guided by an accountability framework for the UN and its implementing partners in Kosovo, defined in the CDP . This framework is closely aligned to both the emerging global Sustainable Development Goals as well as to the European integration agenda. By focusing its combined resources on strengthening governance and rule of law and promoting higher social inclusion, the UN system in Kosovo seeks to leverage its unique comparative advantages in pursuit of positive, transformative changes that will benefit all Kosovars.
This support is aligned with the priorities already identified by the authorities of Kosovo, including the National Development Strategy (2016-2021) and the Rule of Law Assistance Strategy in Kosovo, 2016-2019 (Justice and Internal Affairs). It is based on the comparative advantages of the United Nations system and complements assistance provided by other international stakeholders. In accordance with General Assembly resolution 67/1, and in conjunction with existing UN priorities and other policy documents of the United Nations, all assistance to the authorities of Kosovo is based on the principles of local ownership. Furthermore, this programme builds upon the draft United Nations Strategic Framework (2016-2018) and the 2016 Joint Annual Work Plan of the United Nations Common Development Plan (2016-2020) .
UN Women will contribute to the Joint United Nations Police, Justice and Corrections Support Programe in Kosovo (GFP) through its specific program outputs/activities to the joint implementation modality, through strengthening the existing Coordination Mechanisms and referral system at municipal level and establishing new ones, building capacities of Police and Judiciary and by providing technical assistance on Gender Responsive Budgeting aimed at having clearly indicated and engendered budget lines for addressing Gender Based Violence.
Explicit linkages to the Global Goal 5 Targets will be made through ensuring the collection and interpretation of sex/age disaggregated data and conducting gender analysis to better inform project design and implementation. The programme will prioritize in particular women’s access to justice services and women’s participation and role (including UN Women is seeking to recruit a Project Coordinator) who will be responsible for implementation, monitoring and reporting on UN Women activities in the UN GFP program. The Project Officer will work under the supervision of UN Women Head of Office in Pristina, and work closely with UN task force and UN GFP programme staff.
 The Common Development Plan 2016-2020 is guided by the “Delivering as One” approach aiming to support institutions and communities in reaching their desired progress and to also strengthen the performance of the UN System at the local level. The UNKT is committed to augment its performance by creating additional value through joint programming, more effectiveness through UN common services and greater impact through collective advocacy having the key international and regional human rights instruments and the Sustainable Development Goals at its core.
