Leading Together is a collection of practical advice from experienced leaders in international disaster and conflict response. It is a call to reflect and invest time in ensuring that we are prepared to respond when it falls upon us to do so; because, it will be too late to develop the skills, the knowledge and the understanding, when they are needed in the field.

But what exactly is meant by “protection of civilians”? How are peacekeepers meant to protect? What are the responsibilities of heads of mission and force commanders? How are we to counter crimes against women and children who have become weapons of war?
These and other questions are addressed in this program which features contributions from United Nations personnel, military, police and civilian peacekeepers, as well as representatives from international non-governmental organisations around the world with vast experience in the Protection of Civilians in the context of peacekeeping operations.
Jointly developed by the Australian Government’s Australian Civil-Military Centre and UN Women, “Side by Side – Women, Peace and Security” explores how the international community has and can meet its commitments on women, peace and security. The 30-minute documentary features an introduction by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as well as interviews with United Nations personnel, peacekeepers, mediators, humanitarian actors, policy makers and survivors of conflict.
