Assessment of Gender Equality and Awareness in Police/ Security Forces in Conflict Contexts

The report assesses the evidence that gender equality/sensitivity measures within uniformed security forces leads to greater gender responsive security, greater trust from the population, uptake in other security services and more women in uniformed security careers, with a focus on Mali and Niger where possible. Overall, there is insufficient evidence that these measures lead to more effective security operations and a range of ‘social justice’ outcomes.
