On June 6, in Kremenchuk, Poltava Region, NGO “Kremenchuk Anti-Corruption Centre”, a UNP WG1 member, within the framework of the initiative “Prospects for Recovery and Advocacy for EU Membership: the Regional Dimension”, held a roundtable “Women and Girls: War and Reconstruction. What Are the Prospects in the EU?”

The question provoked a lively discussion among the participants, because everyone agrees that it is necessary to change the legal acts related to the education of women and girls during the reconstruction period.

The participants also discussed the National Action Plan “Women, Peace, Security”, which includes the following points:

1. Ensuring equal participation of women and men in decision-making on conflict prevention, conflict resolution and post-conflict rehabilitation at all levels and in all sectors, including the security and defence sector.

2. Establishing a gender-sensitive system for identifying, preventing and responding to security challenges.

3. Ensuring the process of post-conflict reconstruction, development and implementation of transitional justice based on the principles of equal rights and opportunities for women and men.

4. Ensuring protection against gender-based violence and sexual violence (in armed conflict and peacetime)

5. Ensuring the developed institutional capacity of the National Plan implementers for the effective implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in accordance with international standards.
