New publication on IHL and gender

At the ICRC's International Conference in Geneva last week, the Swedish Red Cross launched a book entitled "IHL and Gender - Swedish Experiences". This is a compilation of work produced as part of a working group on international humanitarian law and gender lead by the Swedish Red Cross.

Sally Longworth and Ola Engdahl contributed a chapter to the publication on the impact of incorporating a gender perspective in military operations on the implementation of IHL. Sally Longworth also wrote a chapter on the law of occupation and gender.

The book is available online here.
