          • Gender Analysis: Possibilities of Application in Security Sector

          • In this text BCSP researcher Zorana Brozovic presents the development of interest for gender mainstreaming and gender analysis, concrete steps in the implementation of this analysis, and the most significant theoretical-methodological approaches to gender analysis.

        • This paper provides in more detail and appertaining examples possibilities for the application of gender analysis in security sector - when creating and reforming the policies, formulating and revising the legislation, planning the services, and planning and implementing the projects.

          Gender analysis investigates the relationships and differences between men and women in their respective roles, status, position in the society, and privileges.

          If we understand gender differences, this will enable us to understand the effects that existing or planned policies, programmes, and ways in which services are provided, have on different gender groups, as well as to improve the position of a gender group in less favourable position.

          Conducting the gender analysis is absolutely necessary in the processes of creating and implementing the strategies and policies since it enables us to take account of their different implications for different gender groups.

          A backgrounder is a text in which an author provides the public with the basic and relevant information about certain phenomenon in a clear and succint manner.

          This paper is a result of the project “Supporting The Implementation on NAP on 1325 in Serbia - Towards Gender Responsive Security Sector” supported by Un Women (www.unwomen.org).
