The Arab Institute for Women


Project: Security Forces Training

The AiW, in collaboration with ACE, also secured a grant from the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) for a customized certificate focused on specific courses from the GDHA certificate. The three courses requested by the ICMPD focus on issues related to Women, Peace and Security, specifically the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR 1325), national action plans, and gender mainstreaming. Fifteen participants from the Lebanese security sector, including officers from the Internal Security Forces, the General Security, and the Lebanese Armed Forces received the training. Courses started on January 11, 2021 and ended on April 29, 2021. As part of the program, participants presented projects that they had prepared which all advocated for the implementation of institutional amendments to ensure that gender sensitive policies are set throughout the security sector.
