Report on Implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, somalia 2014

The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA) is an international agreement on women’s rights set up at the Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Beijing in 1995. An accountability process of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) was developed and agreed upon in 1995 that requires member States of the United Nations to meet on a five-yearly basis to review, reassess and make commitments to their implementation of the Platform taking into account existing conditions on the ground. In 2015 there will be another review marking the 20th anniversary of the BPfA. The Guidance Notes provided by UN Women and ECA dictates that the review place special emphasis on the periods since 2009. During the review period (2009 to 2014), Somalia experienced ongoing violence which, in combination with a severe drought in 2011, initiated one of the worst humanitarian crises in two decades. However, given the reality that Somalia is yet to submit its first report and due to the scarcity of data and information, for the purpose of this review, 2010 has been used as the point of departure for the next major review process that will take place at the CSW (Commission of the Status of Women) in 2015.

Women's rights in Islam and Somali Culture

The cultural context and experiences of women in Somaliland provide insight into both specific and universal challenges to the fulfillment of the human rights of all Somali women.  For instance, the collapse of the central government eliminated legal protection of the human rights of women. I the same way, the prolonged war adversely affected their socioeconomic situation. As part of theirsurvival strategies, women assumed heavier economic responsibilities for themselves, their children,their parents and in many instances for their spouses. This enhanced the responsibilities of womenwithin families but did not necessarily translate into overall improvement in the realization of theirrights.

Womens human rights in Somaliland

Since the reassertion of its sovereignty in 1991, the Republic of Somaliland has focused on peace-building and the reconstruction of its nation, which was adversely affected by the war.  The process of peace-building and socio-economic reconstruction towards national development required a concerted effort of both men and women to ensure growth and good governance in all sectors.  Women played an active role in this process but were soon marginalized by negative traditions and customs that perceived national development as a male domain.  This perception stemmed from the patriarchal lineage of the clan-based system, which recognizes male dominance and perpetrated gender inequality through customary laws.  The norm of gender inequality, which was once a feature of nomadic society, is gradually proving untenable to meet the challenges of the new millennium as well as national and international development.
