POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE IN EMERGENCIES
Gender-based violence (GBV) has been recognized as a cross-cutting issue affecting the lives of victims from a diversity of dimensions including culture, education, health, economy, psychology, livelihoods, and political participation. Violence against women and girls was chosen as one of the critical areas of action following the Beijing Conference. This presents a key opportunity for different players, including government agencies, NGOs, United Nations agencies, and other institutions, to build an understanding of issues of violence and undertake activities to combat violence. This online course is imperative to build this understanding and initiate and strengthen programs combating gender-based violence.
The course also features several exercises and reflective activities designed to examine the concepts of gender, gender-based violence, sexuality, and rights. It will further explore the impact of gender-based violence on education, health, and development.
This advanced course is aimed at building the capacity and commitment of participants to undertake programs targeted at eradicating gender-based violence and developing a new movement for gender equality.
