Gender Perspectives in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations

Below are the language versions available for study:

Revised 9/2011

This course addresses the conceptual and operational issues involved in integrating a gender perspective into multidimensional peace operations. It describes the problems related to gender within contemporary armed conflict by contextualizing the evolution of gender relations within the history of world conflict. The course also explores many important concepts such as gender equity, gender balance, and gender equality, along with several underreported realities of conflict, such as sexual violence against males and sexual exploitation and abuse committed by UN peacekeepers. Invoking the various UN and non-UN instruments of human rights and gender equality, the course emphasizes the need for women to play a strategic role in all levels of decision-making in regional, national, and international institutes and mechanisms. Seven lessons.

Révisé 6/2012

Ce cours traite des questions conceptuelles et opérationnelles liées à l’intégration d’une perspective de genre au sein des opérations de maintien de la paix multidimensionnelles. Il décrit les problèmes liés à l'égalité entre les sexes dans les conflits armés contemporains en mettant en contexte l'évolution des relations entre les sexes au sein de l'histoire du conflit mondial. Le cours permet également d'explorer plusieurs concepts importants tels que l'égalité entre les sexes, l'équilibre entre les sexes et l'égalité des sexes, avec plusieurs réalités occultées du conflit, comme la violence sexuelle contre les hommes et l'exploitation sexuelle et les abus commis par des casques bleus des Nations Unies. En invoquant les Nations Unies et les instruments de l'ONU pour les droits de l'homme et l'égalité des sexes, le cours met l'accent sur la nécessité des femmes à jouer un rôle stratégique à tous les niveaux du processus décisionnel dans les instituts et mécanismes régionaux, nationaux et internationaux. Sept leçons.

"I enjoyed this course and found myself being challenge with the quizzes and the final exam. Although, I feel that the quizzes did not prepared me well enough for the final exam - the exam was challenging. I feel that I am unable to figure out the correct answers for my errors."
