on the NAP onPrevention, Protection and
Empowerment of Women in Conflict Areas (RAN P4DK) in line with Human Rights Instruments
The N-Peace Network has announced the Awardee of Role
Models for Peace from N-Peace Award 2013 and the Media Release titled “Asian
Women Peace Activists Receive N-Peace Awards for Their Work in the Frontlines
of Conflict”could be accessed at:
The N-Peace Award, organized The N-Peace (Engage for
Peace, Equality, Access, Community and Empowerment) Network, is a prestigious
award to give recognition and its build profiles of women leaders and women
peace builders working to create change from grass-roots up to the national level
in six countries (Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Timor Leste and the
Philippines) in Asia affected by conflict. This initiative is facilitated by
the United Nations Development Programme Asia Pacific Regional Centre (APRC
UNDP), in partnership with Search for Common Ground and the Institute for
Inclusive Security, with the support of AusAID.
This year, we are honored that our (INSTITUT PEREMPUAN
- WOMEN'S INSTITUTE) Founder and Chairperson of Executive Board,is being selected as the Awardee of  Role
Models for Peace Indonesia from the N-Peace Award 2013. We do believe this is
not a personal victory for herself, but an appreciation for the all inspiring
women activists who struggle to promote peace and justice.
This victory is also certainly not the end. Various
efforts to achieve meaningful peace and justice, in particular free from the
violence, exploitation, and discrimination, is still a long way to go. In
Indonesia, although we have the Law on Elimination of Domestic Violence, the
Law on Victim and Witness Protection, the Law on Combating the Crime of
Trafficking in Persons, but the implementation remains a challenge. As migrant
workers or domestic workers, women are also still at risk of violence and
exploitation. Therefore, the amendment to the Law on the Placement and
Protection of Indonesian Workers Abroad and the deliberation of the Bill on
Domestic Workers Protection, are still to be fought in order to accommodate the
issue of violence against women, while the Law on Social Conflict Management is
also need to becriticized, together with the new Law on
Community Organizations which was passed recently despite strong rejection from
civil society.
In particular, with this Award, once again we are very
hopeful that the President SBY could immediately enact the Presidential
Regulation on the National Action Plan for Prevention, Protection and
Empowerment of Women in Conflict Areas (RAN P4DK) which is currently is still a
draft Presidential Regulation on the National Action Plan for Protection and
the Empowerment of Women and Children in Conflict Management 2014-2019 (RAN P3A-PK).
It is very important to make sure the NAPin line with human rights instruments in particular women, peace, and security
(WPS), including the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325
(2000) 1820 (2009), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2010); 1960 (2011), and the newest UNSCR
2106 adopted by the UN Security Council on June 24, 2013. The NAPaims to ensure the presence of women's role in peace-building, particularly in
conflict areas.
Now is the time for RAN P4DK in line with human
Thank you and regards,
