Résumé
The human security challenges facing Palestinian women and men are multiple and cannot be resolved through a piece-meal approach. Improving women’s access to decent work in the West Bank and Gaza Strip needs to take into account the ramifications ensuing from continued Israeli occupation, the limited employment opportunities generated by the Palestinian economy, the inadequate provision of social protection, in addition to social norms prevailing in Palestinian society. A comprehensive approach towards gender equality in the world of work continues to need attention to strengthening capacities of institutions to recalibrate wages and conduct regular gender-neutral job evaluation ; investing in diversifying career opportunities for young girls and encouraging women to enter the labour force by securing necessary services, including provision of accessible and affordable quality child care. Such an approach can be achieved through research, capacity building, social dialogue and awareness raising. This initiative will focus on new areas of work such as pay equity and care economy while expanding work on gender based violence in the workplace and cooperatives.
