PROGRAMME
Name Preventing Violence Against Women and Gender Inequality in Peacekeeping
Type Distance education
Organising institution
Peace Operations Training Institute, United States of America
Frequency Various
Objectives Gender inequality and violence against women affect the lives of every person, regardless of age or gender. This course aims to assist peacekeeping personnel to promote 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 UN 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.
