NATO and its partners are taking action to promote the role of women in peace and security. Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is often used as a weapon of war and can undermine NATO’s operations, but also conflict resolution and long-term recovery.
Since 2015, NATO has military guidelines that recognise and act upon the need to prevent and respond to conflict-related SGBV.
A recent workshop in Brussels brought together NATO personnel, international and field subject-matter experts, representatives of the United Nations, the European Union, the International Committee of the Red Cross and civil society to discuss and evaluate the progress made by NATO in implementing the NATO Military Guidelines on the prevention of, and response to, conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence as well as the work that still lies ahead.
Footage includes interviews with Clare Hutchinson, NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security, and NATO Gender Advisor Maj Stephanie Nicol, as well as b-roll from NATO’s workshop on military guidelines on the prevention of, and response to, conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence.
