International Training Programme UNSCR 1325
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation and the consultancy company Indevelop, are running Advanced International Training Programmes (ITPs) on UN Resolution 1325: Women, Peace and Security, assigned by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
Kvinna till Kvinna has been working with these programmes since 2011 and has several programmes running during 2016. One programme is Global targeting the Democratic Republic of Congo, Georgia, Liberia, Colombia and South Sudan. Two other programmes targets one country respectively: Myanmar/Burma and Colombia.
The objectives of the programmes are:
- Increasing women’s influence and participation in the political process during conflict and post-conflict reconstruction.
- Increasing the recognition of the special needs of girls and women in conflict and post-conflict contexts.
- Enabling organisational change with participants being given the opportunity to use the knowledge and tools provided by the programme to contribute to the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325.
The programs are primarily designed for mid-level and senior officials in organisations working with human rights and in the security sector. This means that the participants should represent the countries government (relevant ministries, judiciary, military and police authorities etc.), human rights or women’s rights organisations, academic institutions or media and the private sector
To ensure the successful implementation of the programmes, the participants have to come from organisations/institutions with a mandate and an interest to work with UNSCR 1325 in their respective countries.
The programmes are usually run in English and each round admits 25 participants.
At present there are no open calls for applications.
