15 September 2010
The focus of the Tool is national-level implementation of the standards set by the four UN Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security (1325, 1820, 1888 and 1889) in security sector institutions. Reflecting the text of the resolutions, the Tool focuses on reforms in the defence forces, police and the justice sector. Issues examined include: DDR, vetting, specialised services for victims of sexual violence, prosecution of violence against women in armed conflict, measures to increase women’s leadership in police and defence organisations and to promote deployment of women in peacekeeping, peacekeepers’ training, operational strategies to prevent sexual violence, and gender justice.
