Participants after attending the introductory training will be familiar with the basic principles for integrating gender perspective into their policy and programme design and implementation.
The training will be facilitated by experts in the field of integration of gender perspective in refugee programmes and policies: Dr Sandra Pertek (University of Birmingham), Dr hab. Aleksandra Szczerba (Jacob of Paradies University in Gorzów Wielkopolski, EUHatEq), Dr Marta Pietrusińska (University of Warsaw), Aleksandra Gulińska (University of Warsaw).
