This intensive Gender Mainstreaming programme targets personnel currently deployed or preparing to deploy on peace missions and operations. Through a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of:

  • Gender concepts and frameworks: Examining the impact of gender on conflict dynamics and how analysis informs effective peacekeeping strategies.
  • Protection of women and girls: Delving into best practices for preventing and responding to conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence (CRSV).
  • UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security: Navigating the international legal framework promoting gender equality in peacekeeping operations.
  • Communication and advocacy: Developing skills to communicate effectively about gender issues within missions and with local communities.

By equipping peacekeepers with the necessary knowledge and skills about gender mainstreaming, this training programme represents a crucial step towards building more inclusive, effective, and sustainable peace efforts.
