Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Where we work

Our gender teams work tirelessly to make sure that the voices of women and girls are included in all areas of peacekeeping.

We recognize that peace and security can only be achieved and sustained if all members of society are equal in terms of opportunities, protection, access to resources and services, participation in decision making, and other basic rights.

We deploy Gender Advisory teams, led by a Gender Adviser, to all multi-dimensional peacekeeping operations to support the integration of gender in all our work. Their work includes supporting local women to participate in peace processes; protecting women and girls from sexual violence; advocating and promoting the inclusion of women in electoral systems; providing support to Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration programs and engaging women's voices in legal and judicial procedures.

Our gender advisers are in the following UN Peacekeeping missions:

In the following smaller missions, we have Gender Focal Points to support the mission leadership to promote gender equality:
