Directions to Venue


Security sector reform transforms security policies, institutions and programs. Integrating gender issues into security sector reform includes the different security and justice sector needs of women, men, boys and girls. In this session participants will learn about the multidimensional nature of gender-based violence and explore its impact on a range of security issues—from physical security to economic security. Participants will work on a case study that focuses on gender-based violence (GBV) and security policy development. This exercise emphasizes that a gender-responsive national security policymaking process seeks to:

   • Address the multidimensional nature of gender-based violence;
   • Identify the relevant stakeholders and actors to help shape policy;
   • Consult and involve women and men from across the community;
   • Address security needs of different groups (men, women, boys and girls).
