This box contains four discussion papers on democracy and pillar of UN Work.

Democracy and Gender Equality
The Role of the UN

Women’s participation is a central element of democracy, and the nature and degree of women’s participation are key indicators of the quality of democratic culture. Based on the discussions at a high-level round table held in 2011 with 150 policymakers, practitioners and academics, this discussion paper reveals both challenges and opportunities for the UN in promoting gender equality and strengthening democracy worldwide.

Democracy and Development
The Role of the UN

This discussion paper presents the conclusions and recommendations from two round table discussions, held in 2008 and 2011, on the relationship between democratic governance and the achievement of development outcomes. This first meeting identified areas of policy development to improve multilateral action, particularly by the UN, in democracy building. The second meeting looked more specifically at the role of the UN in simultaneously promoting democracy and development agendas.

Democracy, Peace and Security
The Role of the UN

Democratization in conflict-affected countries is a multidimensional challenge. Implementing democracy-assistance programs requires more sustained and strategic security, political and development support.’ This is one key recommendation that emerged from a round table on the United Nations’ role in promoting democracy, peace and security.

Democracy and Human Rights
The Role of the UN

This discussion paper presents the conclusions and recommendations from an international round table, focusing on democracy and human rights. The round table discussions aimed to analyse the linkages between democracy and human rights and their relevance to current UN actions.
