MSB Gender Equality Toolkit: Practical Advice for International Operations

The toolkit gathers a large amount of tools, checklists and inspiration on how to ensure the integration of gender equality considerations into the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency's (MSB) international operations. It was initially published in 2009 in the form of a "Gender Equality Handbook" meant to support MSB staff in efforts to mainstream gender equality into international operations. The 2019 revision transformed the handbook into a toolkit. While it is still addressed to MSB staff, it offers a wealth of advice for all experts working in civilian CSDP missions as well as in UN or OSCE peace support operations.
