Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Mali (June 2020)
In its renewal of the mandate for the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), the Council should ensure all existing WPS-related provisions are maintained (S/RES/2480 (2019), OPs 28(a)(ii), (c)(iii), (d)(iv), (e)(ii), 56)). Further, the Council should continue to call upon the Government to ensure women’s participation in processes and institutions that support the implementation of the Agreement, including in the Cabinet and the territorial administrative positions. Although recent deliberations by the Comité de suivi de l’Accord indicated progress in advancing women’s inclusion, these efforts must be moved forward expeditiously, and considered critical as part of efforts to ensure implementation continues in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Language calling on the Government to support the reintegration of survivors of GBV and gender and religion-based persecutions, and to make efforts to address stigma at the national and local levels should be maintained and strengthened with language calling for increased access to justice and advancement of current judicial proceedings to ensure crimes are fairly adjudicated in a timely manner (CEDAW/C/MLI/CO/6-7, S/RES/2364 (2017), OP 11, ICC Case Information Sheet, Coalition for the International Criminal Court).
