    Although referencing Nepal, the material is invaluable for 3-day workshops for all conflict and post-conflict regions, for UN/IGO, Military and NGO/CSO peace- and democracy-building use. The workbook contains tools, hand-outs, briefing information sheets and selected reading materials. It is accompanied by two sets of PowerPoint slides: Gender and security and Security and security sector reform (SSR) and a Companion workbook. The workbook contains tools, hand-outs, briefing information sheets and selected reading materials. It has been designed to be as helpful as possible to trainers. It contains daily learning diaries and lists of resources on gender and security issues for journalists and civil society. Many of the tools have been included as useful background material for researchers or journalists to keep for future reference. The workbook can be given to participants for use during the workshops or for future reference.
    This publication is part of a broader project by the Institute of Human Rights Communication (IHRICON) and Saferworld, with support from the Swiss Development Corporation, which strengthens the development and implementation of gender-sensitive policy and programming on security.
