Our latest animation Gendered Community Policing: Why it matters, how to do it is finally here in Arabic and French! This animation – the fourth in our Better Peace Initiative series – explores why gender sensitivity and inclusivity matter when carrying out community policing initiatives. It provides an overview of what community policing is and gives tangible suggestions on how to ensure gender sensitivity in practice.

Since 2014, ICAN has developed and produced 4-5 minute animations on topics that are addressed in peace processes. The themes are explored from a gendered perspective and the animations are meant for a wide audience. This past year our Better Peace Initiative has tackled new themes, such as gendered devolution and most recently gendered community policing.

ICAN also delivers expert advice, tailored seminars, and trainings on gender sensitivity and inclusion in peace processes for a range of actors, including the UNDPA, civil society actors, governments and others. The first cut of the English version of Gendered Community Policing: Why it matters, how to do it was screened in July 2018 at our inaugural Executive Seminar and Certification Course on Gendered and Inclusive Mediation in Ottawa, Canada. Based on feedback and reactions from partners and practitioners we revised and released a final cut, which is now being translated into multiple languages!

Our animations are easily transferable and adaptable to local contexts, while ensuring effective inclusivity. We translate our animations based on demand and work closely with our partners in the Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership to determine their needs and ensure that these are met.
