Deadline: 25 May 2020
- Monitor, report on and advocate for the implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (also known as Istanbul Convention) and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in Montenegro.
- Provide specialist support services for victims of all forms of violence in line with the standards enshrined in CEDAW and the Istanbul Convention, including women from minority or disadvantaged groups.
- Addressing gender inequalities compounded by the COVID19 pandemic and risk of gender-based violence.
Scope of the Project
- The Programme builds on the strong links of UNDP with women civil society organizations (CSOs) in Montenegro, placing the Programme in a strategic position to assist women in their drive for rights as citizens. Civil society, in particular women’s organizations, plays a crucial role in the promotion of gender equality and women’s rights. Furthermore, women’s organizations are key stakeholders in ensuring that the perspectives and voices of the most excluded and discriminated against groups of women are heard by policy-makers. Additionally, women’s organizations are instrumental – in terms of their networks, outreach and innovation – to facilitating the required behavioral and attitudinal changes for tackling the structural barriers to gender equality and ending violence against women.
- The ultimate goal of the eighteen-month Programme is to reduce violence against women and girls and all forms of discrimination in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The Programme is anchored in the normative frameworks of CEDAW and the Istanbul Convention (IC), and also in alignment with EU accession standards.
