DPKO/DFS - DPA Joint Guidelines on Enhancing the Role of Women in Post-Conflict Electoral Processes
Oct 30, 2015
The objective of these guidelines is to provide advice on measures that could be implemented in future electoral processes in post-conflict environments to increase the participation of women as voters, candidates, and electoral officials and to ensure that electoral processes have an equal impact on women and men. The guidelines are primarily aimed at field-based United Nations staff, including those serving with peacekeeping operations and special political missions. In addition, they seek to target agencies responsible for the delivery of electoral assistance, such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) - whether as advisers or implementers - in coordination with national and international counterparts.
