Preventing Violence Against Women and Gender Inequality in Peacekeeping

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. Ten lessons.

L’inégalité de genre et la violence à l’égard des femmes affectent la vie de chacun, quelque soit son âge ou son sexe. Ce cours a pour ambition d’aider les personnels des opérations de maintien de la paix à promouvoir les droits de l’homme et la sécurité des femmes et des jeunes filles. Il le fera au travers de leçons qui mettront l’accent sur la nature et l’ampleur de la violence faite aux femmes et aux jeunes filles partout sur la planète, ainsi que sur les connexions entre l’inégalité de genre et la violence à la fois dans les espaces publics et domestiques, tout comme aux niveaux interpersonnels, communautaires, nationaux, régionaux et internationaux. D’autres leçons traiteront de la problématique des droits de la femme comme droits de l’homme ainsi que du mandat international des NU d’engager des femmes dans des rôles clés au sein des processus de maintien de la paix et de consolidation de la paix à chaque étape et à chaque niveau d’autorité. Des lectures ainsi que des études de cas offriront des exemples à savoir comment aider les personnels de maintien de la paix à mieux travailler pour être en mesure de promouvoir l’égalité de genre et de changer les attitudes et les comportements qui perpétuent la violence. Dix leçons.
