Where we work
Our gender teams work tirelessly to make sure that the voices of women are included in all areas of peacekeeping.
There are currently nine gender advisers in peacekeeping operations around the world. Their work includes supporting local women to participate in peace processes, protecting women and girls from sexual violence and engaging women’s voices in legal and judicial procedures.
Our gender advisers are in the following UN Peacekeeping missions:
- UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO)
- UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT)
- UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL)
- UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH)
- UN Operation in Côte d'Ivoire (UNOCI)
- UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS)
- African Union-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID)
- UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA)
- UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL)
