Gender and Militarism is a Six-Days of intensive experiential learning for peace activists, national and international non-governmental and governmental workers, trainers, teachers, advisers and consultants, students, and women and men who would like to learn more about these issues. The training is a combination of the participants and the facilitator experiences regarding gender and militarism with practical models for action and skills of gender empowerment and peace building in that context. The course will open with a basic introduction to gender studies, analyzing the complex relationship between gender , social constructions and gender, race and class privileges. During the course, we will explore the interdependency between gender and power and focus on the theory and practices of gender roles in different societies. With this background in mind, the course will then focus on militarism, the war system and different notions of what peace is in the context of gender. The direct connection between militarism and the system of war, and gender based violence, gender based societal positions and violence-oriented societies, will be demonstrated through examples from the Middle East, South East Asia, and Western and Eastern Europe, with an emphasis on the Balkans and the United States. The course will further seek to explore how different models for women's empowerment, based on the understanding of genderial social constructions, can help in addressing gender inequalities and inequities created by the system of war in all spheres of life - whether military or civilian.
