The Uganda Police Force, in collaboration with UN Women Uganda, will conduct a comprehensive barrier assessment on the national police using the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF) – Measuring Opportunities for Women in Peace operations (MOWIP) barrier assessment methodology.
The project contributes to the Elsie Initiative Fund’s outcome on expanded country specific knowledge of barriers to the deployment of women peacekeepers to United Nations peace operations.
By implementing a MOWIP assessment, this project will achieve the following results:
- Provide factual data and information on the nature and scope of obstacles and opportunities in Uganda related to the deployment of women police officers to UN peace operations;
- Use the findings and recommendations from the assessment to develop interventions and refine initiatives to address the identified barriers to increase the number of women police officers eligible for deployment to UN peace operations.
