About the Course

This course, developed in partnership with DCAF – Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance, aims to assist peacekeeping personnel in promoting the human rights and security of women and girls. It does so through lessons emphasizing the nature and scope of violence against women and girls around the globe, the connections between gender inequality and violence in both public and domestic spaces as well as on interpersonal, community, national, regional, and international levels. Other lessons cover women's rights as human rights and the international United Nations mandate to involve women in key roles within peacemaking and peacebuilding processes at every stage and every level of authority. Readings and case studies provide examples to assist peacekeeping personnel with considering how they, as individuals and as teams, can work to promote gender equality and to change the attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate violence. Ten lessons.
