Gender mainstreaming has long been a goal in the field of peacebuilding, and addressing the various gender aspects throughout trainings is an international requirement. However, this is often easier said than done. Trainers are often uncertain about how exactly gender impacts upon their area of expertise and how they can highlight the genderaspects effectively in their training. Although many trainers are eager to mainstream gender and make participants aware of the importance of taking gender into consideration in their topic, they would like some support on how to ‘tease out’ the gender perspective in a comprehensive way. If you are one of these trainers, this manual is for you. This trainer’s manual was created to assist gender mainstreaming efforts within the training community for peacebuilding and is especially geared towards trainers who address personnel working in peace operations. The manual encourages you to become aware of the gender perspective in your module, so that you can more easily mainstream gender throughout your training topic. It is not about turning your module into a module on gender, but helping you mainstream it throughout so that it is naturally incorporated. (source: manual's introduction) Download
