Gender in Conflict & Peacebuilding Training

Training at swisspeace in Basel
Veranstaltungstyp: 
Fortbildungen und Trainings

How do gender roles change during phases of violent conflict and war? And how does this affect peacebuilding processes? Conflict has a profound impact on gender relations and contests accepted gender roles, providing space for transformative action for gender equality in post-conflict reconstruction. Peacebuilding does not always foster gender equality when advocated through normative frameworks, such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women or the UN Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. Specific endeavors must therefore address gender power relations and roles systematically at all levels and in all phases of peacebuilding. Participants examine the gender-specific dimensions of conflict and peacebuilding. They reflect critically on the notions of masculinity, violence and militarism in wartime as well as on the discourses on women as actors and victims of war.
