Today (27 March), the Security Council is expected to renew the mandate of the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) for an additional year. It appears that there was consensus among Council members that UNSOM should maintain its core mandate. Thus, the mission will continue to provide strategic support and advice to the Federal Government of Somalia and the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) on peacebuilding and state-building in the areas of governance; security sector reform and rule of law; development of a federal system; constitutional review; and coordination of international donor support. In addition, the mission will continue to assist the federal government in building its capacity to promote respect for human rights and women’s empowerment; to promote child protection; to prevent conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence; and to strengthen justice institutions. UNSOM will further continue to monitor and report on any abuses or violations of human rights or of international humanitarian law committed in Somalia, or any abuses committed against children or women.
