HREA offers new certificate course on gender in humanitarian action

Gender Mainstreaming Cambridge, 8 May 2012 -- HREA will be offering a new e-learning course Gender and Humanitarian Action from 30 May-10 July 2012. Through this e-learning course staff members of (international) development agencies and NGOs will be introduced to the relevance of gender to humanitarian programming. "There is increasing recognition that humanitarian crises affect people differently and that there is a need to ensure that the differing needs of men, women, boys and girls are met within humanitarian response", says course instructor Aisling Swaine.

The course identifies why addressing gender matters in humanitarian response and will make participants familiar with key frameworks underpinning gender mainstreaming approaches. For further information and to apply online, please visit: www.hrea.org/gender-and-humanitarian-action

The Gender and Humanitarian Action course will be part of a new certificate programme "Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment" that HREA will launch in 2013. The certificate programme will consist of four e-learning courses (the Gender and Human Rights foundation course, a required specialised course "Gender Mainstreaming" or "Monitoring Women's Rights", and two elective courses such as "Gender and Peacebuilding"; "Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity"; and "Women in War and Armed Conflicts") and a five-day advocacy institute.
