The MIA management had a meeting with the representatives of UN Women Moldova

The leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs had a meeting with the representative of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women from Moldova (UN Women Moldova), Dominika Stojanoska.

The discussions were aimed at intensifying bilateral cooperation between the institutions in order to achieve common goals and carry out the actions provided for in the National Program for the implementation of Resolution 1325 of the UN Security Council on women, peace and security for the years 2023-2027.

In this context, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Adrian Efros, appreciated the support of UN Women Moldova for strengthening the capacities of the internal affairs system, which brings our country closer to European and global standards in security services.

Another topic of discussion was the eradication of gender-based violence in our country and supporting the MIA in the initiative to strengthen institutional capacities. In this sense, it was mentioned the substantial role of the Police Family Justice Center in providing the necessary help to victims of family violence and sexual violence.

We specify that MIA and UN Women will collaborate over the next five years by conducting training for MIA employees, through peer-to-peer education activities, workshops, e-learning courses, exchange of best practices with EU countries, but not only.

It ist o be noted that in March 2023, the Government of the Republic of Moldova adopted the National Program for the implementation of Resolution 1325 of the UN Security Council on women, peace and security for the years 2023-2027 and the Program for promoting and ensuring equality between women and men in Republic of Moldova for the years 2023-2027.

  The main purpose of the Program is to create a series of opportunities for the qualitative representation of women in the security and defense sector on an internal and external level, including in the conflict negotiation process, in order to ensure the security of the entire society – both for women and for men.
