Men, women, boys and girls are affected by conflict in different ways, and therefore IHL must respond to these divergent needs in order to stay true to its humanitarian endeavour. This publication of Swedish experiences working with IHL and gender is aimed at increasing awareness and providing practical guidance on what a gender perspective on IHL can entail for decision-makers and actors with responsibilities under IHL. The inclusion of a gender perspective on IHL will help ensure that it remains adequate and effective in response to current humanitarian challenges.
