Women, Peace and Security: An Introductory Manual


As part of our responsibilities under Australia’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security, the ACMC has funded and provided technical subject matter expertise for the Women, Peace and Security: An Introductory Manual, launched today by the Chief of the Defence Force General David Hurley and Ms Julie McKay, Executive Director UN Women and Gender Adviser to CDF.

The ACMC and the Australian National Committee for UN Women have worked together to develop and publish a Women, Peace and Security training manual. The purpose of the manual is to increase understanding in the Australian Defence Force of Australia’s commitment to and engagement with UNSCR 1325 (including through the National Action Plan) and the broader Women, Peace and Security agenda.

The Women, Peace and Security training manual will be used as a general reference guide for training sessions with civil and military audiences and will form part of the training package that Defence is developing on Women, Peace and Security.
