This joint statement is well worth reading by peace educators as a basis of an inquiry on the integral relationship of the human rights of women to the achievement of just and stable peace.
Men’s violence prevention (MVP) programs seek to transform men’s silence and inaction into allyship and change. However, it should be clear: MVP is a complementary approach to other violence against women (VAW) work. The point is not to center men, but to support women’s activism, research and leadership towards the goal of ending VAW wherever possible.
This paper presents the results of an evaluation of school-based peace education and a community-based intervention to change harmful social norms and practices related to gender and the use of violence in conflict resolution, implemented in Afghanistan with the aim of reducing violence against and between children.
“Through proper training and strengthening of tools for people working to eradicate violence against women, the Government of Yucatán complies with the tenets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, said the head of the General Secretariat of Government (SGG), María Fritz Sierra at the closing of the workshop “Education for peace, transformation of conflicts, breaking the cycles of violence.”
This Nobel Prize presents a teachable moment. Too few are aware of how integral violence against women (VAW) is to war and armed conflict. VAW will continue to exist as long as war exists. Eliminating VAW is not about making war somehow “safer” or more “humanitarian.” Reducing and eliminating VAW is dependent on the abolition of war.
This guidance aims to provide a comprehensive, one-stop resource on school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV), including clear, knowledge-based operational guidance, diverse case studies drawn from examples of promising practice and recommended tools for the education sector and its partners working to eliminate gender-based violence.
