Gender and Conflict Transformation
War is a gendered activity. In many violent conflict situations security is considered a men's affair and is exclusively defined in military terms. Human security, based on universal human needs, is however essential and often underrated as a factor contributing to lasting peace. Given the rapid proliferation of violence, terrorism and conflict during the last decade, women's different skills, perspectives and leadership styles can prove extremely useful to ensure human security, by contributing to changing perceptions, building relationships and developing common understandings and visions that benefit families, communities and nations worldwide.
This four-week online course shows what a gender-sensitive approach to conflict transformation looks like and how it can be implemented in organisation's strategies. If you would like to have more information on the course, please visit our demosite.
