Dear Colleagues,

HREA's 6-week instructor-led online course on GBV starts on 29 October. You will find a course description and further details below or at<>.

29 October-9 December 2014

This e-learning course introduces participants to general definitions, concepts and normative and legal frameworks related to concepts of GBV. The course will cover forms, causes and consequences of GBV in conflict contexts, as well as on an endemic basis. Prevention and response programming, as well as models underpinning mainstreaming and targeted actions on GBV, and the need for coordinated approaches will be covered. The course will provide basic knowledge and skills on GBV to staff of international humanitarian and development organisations aiming to deepen their understanding and engagement on GBV responsive programming.

After taking this course, participants will:
* be able to define and describe definitions and forms of GBV, and its causes and consequences;
