The guide is a reference that aims at empowering service providers from official institutions such as the police, the judiciary, the public prosecution, the civil society institutions, the media, religious leaders and other actors working in the fight against violence against women. This guide also sheds the light on the establishment of fair policies for women in addressing gender-based violence in times of peace and war. It also establishes a comprehensive understanding of the international system of conventions and declarations to combat gender-based violence. It provides as well as an understanding of Resolution 1325, the subsequent resolutions and every achievement made within the framework of equality and prevention of gender-based discrimination in peacetime, conflict and post-conflict situations.
