United Nations Police Gender Toolkit: Standarised Best Practices on Gender Mainstreaming in Peacekeeping

General Material
Published Date
January, 2015

In three modules, this resource covers lessons on how to apply gender concepts to policing; how to develop a police gender strategy and action plan; how to assist the host state police in developing and implementing a gender equality policy and recruiting female police officers; and how to establish special police units to address sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). While this toolkit was developed for United Nations Police officers, the lessons in each section can be applied to state-specific law enforcement officers as well. Module 3 (p.165) specifically discusses capacity building of the host state police on preventing and investigating sexual and gender-based violence.
