This course addresses the conceptual and operational issues involved in integrating a gender perspective into multidimensional peace operations. It describes the problems related to gender within contemporary armed conflict by contextualizing the evolution of gender relations within the history of world conflict. The course also explores many important concepts such as gender equity, gender balance, and gender equality, along with several underreported realities of conflict, such as sexual violence against males and sexual exploitation and abuse committed by UN peacekeepers. Invoking the various UN and non-UN instruments of human rights and gender equality, the course emphasizes the need for women to play a strategic role in all levels of decision-making in regional, national, and international institutes and mechanisms. Seven lessons.

This course has been developed in consultation with the Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations’ Policy, Evaluation and Training Division. It is based on the internal DPKO/DFS publication entitled United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines, which is more widely known under its informal name Capstone Doctrine. This publication is a comprehensive document that defines and promulgates available peacekeeping doctrine, definitions, procedures, and policy. In ten chapters, it introduces the concept and evolution of UN Peacekeeping, explains the decision process that precedes the deployment of a peacekeeping operation, and then the planning process to implement that decision. It also discusses the art of successful mandate implementation and addresses the management of peacekeeping operations, how operations are supported and sustained, and how they are concluded at their termination.

United Nations civil-military coordination (UN-CIMIC) provides the interface between the military component of a UN peace operation and the political, humanitarian, developmental, human rights, and rule-of-law components of the mission, as well as many other external partners in the larger peacebuilding system. It is a crucial function of any complex peace operation because it is central to the mission achieving a system-wide impact on the conflict it is attempting to transform. UN-CIMIC officers must understand the role and functions of a broad variety of development and peacebuilding actors in order that they facilitate and coordinate the support that the peacekeeping force can provide to others in the mission, non-mission actors, and the local community, as appropriate.
