Gender and Youth Mainstreaming & Human Rights-Based Approaches

Parliaments have an indispensable role to play in helping to proactively address the issues of Human Rights, Gender and Youth, working at both national and regional levels. There is, however, significant work to be done to improve parliamentary understanding and responses to these topics, and so institutional support and improved parliamentary capacities are required. That is why a major priority for PCAsia in 2021 is to utilise the youth development, human rights- and gender-based approach in the design, delivery and evaluation of all activities in order to develop the capacity of parliaments in the region on these subjects.

A focus on this methodology should help PCAsia to improve parliamentary staff capacity to provide support to parliamentarians to implement their representation function as well as to support their oversight role, in particular at the local level. Crucially, Members of Parliament and parliamentary staff with a clearer understanding of these important issues can help to produce better legislation and more meaningful regional agreements, more informed and precise tracking of their implementation and achievement, and more thorough and focused communication with all citizens, especially those traditionally excluded from the decision-making process.
