Abstract: Publisher's description: Security Sector reform (SSR) opens a window of opportunity to transform security policies, institutions and programmes by integrating gender issues and perspectives. Increasing the recruitment of female staff, preventing human rights violations and collaborating with women's organizations, for example, contribute to creating a security sector that is effective, accountable and meets the needs of men, women, boys and girls. The toolkit sets out why gender is important to SSR process, presents practical strategies to integrate gender into SSR, suggests gender-responsive SSR policy approaches, provides material from which to develop training on gender issues, compiles international laws and standards on gender relevant to SSR.
Internal Notes: The toolkit includes: user guide, 13 tools, 13 practice notes based on the tools, annex on international and regional laws and instruments related to SSR and gender.
