International: Gender Dimensions of Operating in Complex Security Environments

23 July 2010

Dr Jemilah Mahmood of UNFPA participated in a panel discussion on 15 July 2010 at the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) 2010 Humanitarian Affairs Segment. She linked to the multi-agency article, 'Women, men and gun violence: options for action', which forms part of a larger publication on directions for the reduction of small arms control and emphasises a gender equity approach to reduce risks and bolster resilience to insecurity and violence.
