1 January, 2010



A gender-responsive border management reform process seeks to:

  • Strengthen the protection of human rights for all by addressing the specific insecurities of men, women, girls and boys at borders
  • Improve prevention and detection of and responses to human trafficking and smuggling
  • Create more representative border institutions by promoting the participation of women
  • Enhance local ownership of border management processes by improving oversight and collaboration with civil society
