Gender in peacekeeping: A practitioners' manual for police gender advisers in peacekeeping missions
30 June 2014

The Institute for Security Studies aims to enhance human security in Africa through evidence-based policy advice, technical support and capacity building.

ISS's Conflict Management and Peacebuilding division aims to enhance effective conflict management and peacebuilding by assisting governments and relevant regional and international institutions to improve their management of conflicts and provision of security.

This comprehensive guide is part of ISS's contribution to advancing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, and ensuring that conflict management and peacebuilding efforts respect and promote the human rights of all.

This guide will help strengthen understanding of gender equality, peace and security and gender-based violence, using international best practices. The guide also provides concrete elements and tools for applying a gender perspective in day-to-day work. Doing so will not only contribute to the effectiveness of this work, but will also be an important factor in ensuring its success.

The Gender Manual is part of the ISS's Training for Peace (TfP) Programme in support of the Southern African Regional Poilice Chief's Cooperation Organisation (SARPCCO) and Eastern African Regional Poilice Chief's Cooperation Organisation (EAPCCO). The materials presented in the package are intended for use by civilian, police and military personnel working in the constantly evolving field of peace and security operations. The information will be used to develop specific training modules in the future.

The ISS is grateful for support from the following members of the ISS Partnership Forum: Governments of Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the USA.
