Training Resources on National Security Policy-Making and Gender

The Gender and SSR Training Resource Package is a series of practical training materials to help trainers integrate gender in SSR training, and deliver effective gender training to SSR audiences.
It is designed for SSR trainers and educators, and gender trainers working with the security sector, to help you present material on gender and SSR in an interesting and interactive manner. The Gender and SSR Training Resource Package contains a wide range of exercises, discussion topics and examples from the ground that you can adapt and integrate into your SSR or gender training.
A gender-responsive national security policy-making process seeks to:

» consult and involve women and men from across the community
» address the security needs of different groups of women, men, boys and girls
» confront gender-based violence
» eliminate discrimination by and within security sector institutions
