UNODA Training Manual on Gender-responsive Small Arms Control
Small arms and light weapons and their illicit trade and misuse continue to impede sustainable peace and development. Given the differentiated impacts of armed violence on women, men, girls and boys, addressing gender dimensions is a critical factor in ensuring national, regional and international peace and security. Particularly, when dealing with small arms and light weapons, incorporating a gender-responsive approach to policies and programmes is required for effective and sustainable interventions. This includes both taking a gendered approach to analysis and policy-making, but also ensuring that women have equal, full and effective participation in decision-making. This manual is intended for trainers to better understand and develop gender-responsive approaches for issues of arms control.

Ce rapport, publié conjointement par le Bureau intégré des Nations unies en Haïti (BINUH) et le Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies aux droits de l'homme (HCDH), montre comment des gangs armés utilisent le viol, y compris le viol collectif, et d'autres formes de violences sexuelles pour répandre la peur, punir, soumettre et faire souffrir les populations locales dans le but ultime d'étendre leurs zones d'influence, dans toute la métropole de Portau-Prince.
