What is the Gender and Security Sector Reform Training Resource Package?
In order to support the drive for gender-responsive SSR, the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR) and the United Nations International Research and Training Institution for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW, now part of UN Women) published a Toolkit on Gender and Security Sector Reform in February 2008.
During the development of the Toolkit it became clear that there was also a need for practical training materials on Gender and Security Sector Reform. This is the purpose of this Gender and Security Sector Reform Training Resource Package.
These training resources are a companion to the SSR and Gender Toolkit. They are designed for SSR trainers and educators, 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 training. Gender trainers working with the security sector will also find the content useful. For more about this Gender and Security Sector Reform Training Resource Package and how to use it, read ‘Using the TRP’.
