IUN-INSTRAW Gender Leadership Training for Peacekeepers

UN-INSTRAW launched its new web resource on 'Gender Training for

Peacekeepers'. The interactive resource fills a gap in the documentation of

gender training opportunities for peacekeepers and aims to facilitate gender

mainstreaming in peacekeeping operations. It presents an overview of

pre-deployment and in-mission gender training provided to uniformed and

civilian peacekeeping personnel and includes information and resources for

institutions interested in incorporating gender issues onto their training

agenda. UN-INSTRAW also publishes a background paper that outlines the

institutional context of gender training within United Nations peace

support operations.

Integrating a gender perspective into peacekeeping training is an effective

way to promote gender equality in peacekeeping missions, so that

peacekeeping personnel can better understand the social context in which

the operations are carried out and the positive and negative impacts that

their actions can have on the host country. The new UN-INSTRAW web resource

highlights the efforts to build capacity in peacekeeping missions on gender

issues and brings together materials that can be used in gender training.

The site is aimed to be interactive and should not be considered

'finished'. Therefore, UN-INSTRAW invites you to email them at if you have information you would like to share about

the training your institution is conducting or to simply share your

comments and ideas.
