Thursday, June 26, 2014
Report Analysis: 

The Security Council met on 26 June 2014 ​to discuss the agenda item entitled, the situation in the Middle East, regarding the implementation of resolution 2139

(2014), pursuant to the most recent humanitarian report (S/2014/427).

Issues of women, peace and security were not referenced in this meeting.

All speakers at the meeting failed to provide a gender perspective in discussion of the humanitarian situation, this included in discussion of access and delivery of

services and supplies and in protection of civilians, including for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, refugees and IDPs explicitly; in reporting on violence

against civilians and civilian deaths; and there was no reference to the challenges faced by or needs of civilians, IDPs and refugees with disabilities.

In comparison to the recommendations put forth in the June 2014 MAP. The meeting’s record was inadequate. The MAP called for services and supplies to meet

the gender-specific needs of female civilians, IDPs and refugees; including those with disabilities and for protection of the civilian population against a wide range of

human rights violations, including sexual and gender-based violence. None of these recommendations were included.
