Gender Mainstreaming and Dealing with Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Peace Operations

This manual was developed for Civilians, Military and Police Personnel Deploying to United Nations or African Union Peace (Support) Operations.

As Africa provides most peacekeepers globally and most of the peace (support) operations are in Africa, it is important to have an African approach in these efforts and accompanying training programmes. This training programme developed by ISS is complementary to training provided by other African Centres of Excellence in providing training to peacekeepers. It further supports the goals set out in UNSCR 1325 and various other international and AU legal frameworks on gender.
