Raising Awareness on Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective in Turkmenistan

A round table for representatives of the law enforcement agencies of Turkmenistan on the issues of integrating a gender perspective in the country has ended in the Lebap velayat.

The event is part of a series of round tables held by the OSCE Center in Ashgabat in the regions of Turkmenistan. Similar seminars have already been organized in Ashgabat, Mary and Balkan velayats, and in October they will be held in the northern region of Turkmenistan.

The participants discussed the implementation of the gender policy of Turkmenistan, relevant legal documents in this area. In particular, the National Plan of the country, a comprehensive document reflecting the international obligations of Turkmenistan in the field of gender equality.

Particular emphasis during the meeting was placed on the promotion of an intersectoral approach to gender issues based on the participation of many stakeholders. In this regard, representatives of the Women's Union of Turkmenistan familiarized with the comprehensive measures aimed at ensuring the participation of women in the public and political life of the country, as well as expanding their opportunities in the economic sphere.
