Gender-based Violence Prevention Handbook

Published on 21.05.2021 at 13:10

To ensure that gender-based violence is comprehensively addressed and prioritised in youth work, this handbook looks at the particular risks faced by women, girls, and the LGBTIQ persons when youth work interventions overlook their strengths and capacity to address, prevent, and respond to gender-based violence as human rights violation. The handbook aims to facilitate the empowerment of youth activists and youth workers who are gender diversity and LGBTIQ rights advocates to work with youth in tackling gender-based violence with inclusion, recognition, and diversity. 

 

The handbook addresses inactions to protect all persons discriminated on the basis of sex and/or gender in youth education or training. It encourages youth-oriented organisations to fulfill their responsibility to facilitate youth empowerment that paves ways for young people to claim and fully realise their human rights. The handbook is thus intended to be used by youth activists, youth workers, or youth organisations involved in the field of gender and human rights education by non-formal learning practices as pathways to guide interventions initiated by young people toward preventing and addressing gender-based violence.

 

Hence, to build an understanding about gender-based violence, its consequences, and how it can be tackled, the handbook begins by exploring the concept of gender; the relationship between sex, sexual identities, and sexual orientations; and the role of systemic oppression and gender discrimination in the perpetuation of gender-based violence. To respond to the learning needs among youth workers, the handbook continues by exploring how to identify or assess a gender-based violence context and then discusses the role of a gender-sensitive and participatory training approach in tackling gender-based violence.
