Director’s Update: July 2016

July’s heat hasn’t slowed us down!

Firstly, we’re delighted to announce the continuation of our Capacity Building for Law Enforcement Personnel on Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response project thanks to a generous grant from the Dutch Embassy. This project will not only enable us to build the practical skillset of female and male Lebanese security personnel in preventing and responding to GBV, but will also offer the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the theoretical frameworks surrounding security, violence and gender, and will enhance their capacity to critically assess and engage with these issues through both theory and practice as a result of this academic exposure.
