About

Governance

The UN has assisted Viet Nam to build transparent, accountable and serviceoriented public administration systems since the early 1990s. The Prime Minister approved the PAR Master Programme (2001-2010) in 2001. Capacities of central and lower-level managers have improved, partnership forums have encouraged policy dialogue, and many new models have been introduced with UN support, including One-Stop Shops and Performance Management Systems. An assessment took place in 2005 of State legal-aid services that were launched in 1997, with UN support.

The National Assembly has a much larger role than before, particularly in the legislative review and oversight process, partly because of capacity building by the UN which included a focus on budget oversight capacities. The National Assembly passed the Law on Independent Auditing in the National Economy in January 2004. The UN has supported the Government to develop Vietnamese Legal Needs Assessments in 2001, Legal System Strategy to 2010 and Vision to 2020, and Judicial Reform Strategy to 2020. These are significant political and legal strategies, including financial provisions within the Government budget and a clear schedule to guide the reform of legislative, executive, and judiciary branches.

Support has been provided to the Government and the workers and employers organisations concerning labour legislation, promotion of core labour standards and convention, reform of the Labour Code, support to the formulation of new laws on Youth, Social Security, Domestic Violence, Overseas Migration as well as Forced Labour. The first national Occupational Safety and Health Framework has bee developed and capacity building for its implementation is on-going. Assistance has also been provided on the UN Convention Against Corruption and the UN Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and its Protocols Against Human Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants.

Under the two international frameworks – the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the Beijing Platform for Action (1995), the UN contributed to increased awareness of women’s human rights (HR) and using the CEDAW process to address women’s HR, while strengthening the capacity of the Government and civil society to promote women’s HR.
