Gender Lens for Arms Control Support and Sustainability

The Gender Lens for Arms Control Support and Sustainability (GLASS) project supports the creation of more inclusive and stable societies through gender-responsive approaches to arms control policy and programming. The project was developed in response to the continuous need for gender-informed and evidence-based solutions to address the proliferation of small arms and light weapons and to strengthen the universalization and implementation of international arms control instruments. Emphasis is placed on increased participation of women in multilateral policy-making forums and the effective integration of gender perspectives in arms control policy and practice.

GLASS has 3 distinct components that build on and reinforce one another:

  • Gender and Small Arms Control: supporting the increased participation of women in multilateral policy-making forums and the effective inclusion of a gender analysis in small arms control;

  • Converging Agendas: strengthening international arms control frameworks and instruments through the uptake and integration of gender-informed and gender-responsive approaches to arms control practices. A dedicated Practical Guide on Gender-responsive Small Arms Control will develop the capacity of policy makers who are new to the issue of gender in arms control to adopt gender-responsive approaches; and 

  • Building the Evidence Base: supporting effective policy and programmes by providing other tools and resources to policy-practitioners, based on the Small Arms Survey’s databases on Global Violent Deaths, Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites, and Transparency Barometer, to develop and implement more effective, relevant and efficient arms control policies and programmes.

The project is made possible by the support of Global Affairs Canada.
