Training Manual: A Gender Perspective in CSDP
This training manual has been developed to provide an introduction to the policy framework on United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) and its follow-up resolutions, the concept of gender and its practical application in the context of the European Union's Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) for both civilian and military personnel.
After the training, the participants should be able to:
- Name the key components of the UN and EU policy framework on UNSCR 1325 and its follow-up resolutions on women, peace and security.
- Give examples that show why gender is an important perspective in the work/context of a CSDP mission.
- Apply a gender perspective through a simple gender analysis.
To support these learning objectives, the training manual is composed of six training units, each with a specific purpose.
