Online Training with online sessions accompanied by self-paced learning: From 16 May 2024 to 27 June 2024, every Thursday from 10:00 to 12:00 CEST.

The course is designed for practitioners working and engaging in the field of development projects, conflict-related contexts or peacebuilding, who wish to learn about how to integrate an intersectional-gender lens in their daily work. Previous knowledge or experiences of the topic of gender and gender equality are not required.

Depending on methods and topic of the training, we limit the number of available spaces to a manageable size (a maximum of 20 participants). Register early to reserve your place!

Content

The course offers practical and analytical tools to how gender-sensitivity can be integrated into the field of development, conflict and peace. It aims to give a thorough understanding of the crucial role of gender and intersectionality in understanding conflict and violence, but also peacebuilding and human rights. Therefore, gender-sensitive conflict analysis, project planning, evaluation and monitoring as well as violence response mechanisms are central parts of the course by working on real live case studies from the participants.

Through interactive methods the course explores critically how power hierarchies, colonial continuities and our own (gendered) identities and positionalities as peacebuilders matters in working with communities in peacebuilding and development settings. Furthermore, international policy and legal instruments supporting gender equality, such as the Women, Peace and Security Agenda and newly emerging frameworks of feminist foreign policy are introduced and discussed.
