Overview l.jpg

The internet as a platform for vaw resources l.jpg
The Internet as a platform for VAW resources Militarisation:

VAW resources can be found on the web sites of:

  • International organisations

  • High profile NGOs

  • Tiny grass-roots organisations

  • Newspapers and academic journals

  • Individual activists

The routes to resources l.jpg
The routes to resources Militarisation:

  • Finding resources follows a pattern of moving from the general to the specific, or the warm to the hot.

  • Use each journey to improve the efficiency of the next one.

  • We need:

    • a starting point – a “launch pad” – into relevant-ish resources.

    • to make the most of the warm resources we find, using them effectively to locate the most relevant resources.

    • to evaluate the resources we find for reliability and relevance.

Strengths and weaknesses of tools l.jpg
Strengths and weaknesses of tools Militarisation:

To find an effective launch pad, we need to take the strengths and weaknesses of search tools into account:

  • Search enginesGood for specific searches - “UN Security Council resolution 1325” “CEDAW”Not good if you need help finding a path through different subject areas - e.g. general search around reproductive rights issues affecting refugee women

  • Specialized databasesGood if you know of a database on exactly your subject areaNot goodif you need to search more broadly

  • Information gateways and subject directoriesGood for general exploration of a subject area, particularly if you need “quality controlled” resourcesNot good for specific searches on a named item

Information gateways l.jpg
Information gateways Militarisation:

  • Excellent launch pad for finding VAW resources

  • Entry points for resources from a whole range of other sources

  • Specialising in resources on a particular field

  • Usually searchable AND

  • Organised into hierarchical subject categories

  • Compiled by people, not robots

  • More focus on sifting for relevance and quality

A note about subject hierarchies l.jpg
A note about subject hierarchies Militarisation:

  • Think creatively around your query

  • Look at it from alternative angles

  • Unpack your query into its various components

  • Observe the different categories these may fall under

  • Start with a general category

  • Click through layers of increasing focus

Multimedia Training Kit


Example l.jpg
Example Militarisation:

In these examples we can see how the same query may have a range of possible general starting categories, from which to develop focus and clarity

Multimedia Training Kit


Exercise l.jpg
Exercise Militarisation:

  • List as many resource-finding launch pads as possible from the different types we have gone through

  • Split into groups and pick a theme for your group from:

    • Refugees

    • War crimes legislation

    • Reproductive rights

    • Conflict resolution campaigns

    • Women soldiers

  • Use a variety of different launch pads, to find:

    • An academic paper

    • An interactive tool (e.g. somewhere to report abuses)

    • The voices of women caught up in conflict

    • A very current news report

  • Use the worksheets to evaluate the launch pads for their usefulness in identifying resources

  • Multimedia Training Kit


    Using the internet to find offline resources l.jpg
    Using the Internet to find offline resources Militarisation:

    • Not all resources are accessible online

      • Some have not been published on the Internet

      • Others are within secure networks

    • Look for sign-posts to off-ramps that take you offline:

      • E-mail addresses

      • Institution names

      • Telephone numbers

      • Postal addresses

    • Look for the people behind the resources you seek

    • VAW experts are connected through networks in the same way that web pages are

    • Finding a relevant-ish person can often lead you to exactly the right person
