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.
