The Project will empower internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Ukraine as agents of change in affecting the human rights framework and access to justice in Ukraine. The project will inter alia do so by ensuring that all processes pursued with major partners include the direct participation and agency of IDPs themselves. Engagement and contribution of women in the overall activities of the Project will also be ensured. This approach reflects the fact that 59.6% of IDPs in Ukraine are women, and highlights the need for gender-sensitive policies in the field.
The Project will be carried out in the framework of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Ukraine 2018-2021.
By placing IDPs themselves and women at the heart of each pillar of the Project, the Project not only focuses its human rights approach on Council of Europe standards as such, but on the fundamental aspects of agency, empowerment, non-discrimination, participation and gender-balance through all mechanisms of the Project. By locating the essence of change with IDPs themselves, displaced professionals and displaced institutions, along with other stakeholders working on internal displacement, the parameters for more long-term, sustainable process of change are forged. Through all three pillars of the Project, which are weaved together, the skills of key stakeholders are simultaneously trained and applied so as to be of direct and concrete use for beneficiaries. Furthermore, this approach highlights the positive stories and images of internally displaced persons as a skilled resource for Ukraine, and as agents of varied capacities, including in shaping an enhanced human rights framework and greater access to justice in Ukraine at large.
The Project will build upon the achievements of the previous project “Strengthening the Human Rights Protection of Internally Displaced Persons in Ukraine”, which has been implemented under the Ukraine Action Plan 2015-2017. The achievements made so far are significant in the most demanding of circumstances. It is important that the results achieved in the last two years are further enhanced and their sustainability ensured. Policies in key areas for IDPs where the Council of Europe has unquestioned authority and expertise – such as access to justice, housing and property rights, and integration – will be further enhanced.
The Project corresponds to the specific needs and requests of beneficiaries and Project partners.
