Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Haiti (April 2018)
In its renewal of the mandate for the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH) the Security Council should maintain the existing provision mainstreaming gender across the mandate (S/RES/2350 (2017), OP 15), and further include a new provision calling for MINUJUSTH to prioritize engagement with women’s CSOs and support the Government’s efforts to engage with women, women leaders, and women’s organizations in all security and development processes. In its discussion of MINUJUSTH’s progress, the Council should ask for updates regarding the mission’s efforts to provide technical support to the police and judiciary on the prevention and prosecution of cases involving SGBV, capacity-building for women’s organizations, and support for women’s participation in political processes (A/72/560). Positively, the work of the previous mission on issues related to discrimination against LGBTI-persons has continued; these efforts should receive full resourcing and support. Finally, the Council should call for the proper investigation of allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and report on measures taken to combat the pervasive culture of impunity and hold perpetrators accountable (S/RES/2272 (2016)).
