Promotion of Gender & Human Rights in Security Sector


Gender & Human Rights

1. We support police organizations in responding to gross violations of human rights and sexual and gender-based violence through training and capacity building on investigation skills.

2. We support the establishment of gender-desks and/or specialized units to educate police officers about gender-based violence and to strengthen the ability of police organizations to understand and address the different security needs of women and vulnerable groups.

3. We promote the active participation of women in all processes related to the governance of security institutions and work with policy makers and oversight bodies to ensure that security institutions are delivering security and safety for women.
