Promover Gênero e Consolidar a Paz: A Experiência Brasileira

Brazil’s actions internationally recognize the lasting effects that gender-based violence has on international peace and security. This recognition is identified through protection activities and technical cooperation projects focused on preventing sexual violence that are implemented abroad.
