Democratic elections provide a crucial opportunity for citizens to shape their governing structures and freely chose the leaders that will lead the nation on their behalf. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) promotes credible and inclusive elections by supporting countries to establish independent electoral bodies and prevent electoral conflict and violence.

SDG 5: Gender equality

The issue of women’s rights is a global issue. The status of women’s rights around the world is an important indicator of global well-being. Despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still persist in all areas of life. For example, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence is increasing in a variety of forms in Liberia. While there may be a decrease in some instances of physical domestic violence, both physical and emotional abuse continue to occur.

SDG 5: Gender equality

La question des droits des femmes est un problème mondial. Le statut des droits des femmes dans le monde est un indicateur important du bien-être mondial. Malgré de nombreux succès dans l'autonomisation des femmes, de nombreuses questions persistent dans tous les domaines de la vie. Par exemple, la violence sexuelle et sexiste augmente sous diverses formes au Libéria. Bien qu'il puisse y avoir une diminution dans certains cas de violence domestique physique, les abus physiques et émotionnels continuent de se produire.

As a UN Volunteer Human Rights Officer with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), I am engaged in monitoring, investigating and reporting human rights violations and abuses, as well as building capacity of civil society partners and state authorities. 

Aside from monitoring detention centres, prisons and police cells, I am engaged in the creation of local human rights networks, and I help them develop their capacity in monitoring and advocacy to build a society that respects human rights with dignity, mutual understanding and peaceful dialogue.
