The guide comprises three sections. The first section explores the situation with respect to personal security. It explores the historical and current situation and future trends and identifies where, how and in what form security concerns arise for people in the community. The second section then explores gender roles, norms and behaviours while the third section brings the two preceding sections together to explore how security concerns and gender intersect. It asks how gender roles, norms and behaviours have been affected by the current security concerns and what role gender plays in either creating or preventing violence.
