A democratic society recognizes the value of equal opportunities for men and women in all spheres of life, including in the armed forces and civil-military interaction. In Ukraine, the Constitution and other legislative acts are primary guarantees of gender equality at the national level. However, the question of gender policy in civil-military cooperation and its implementation under hostilities remains practically unexplored. The aim of the study is to analyze the civil-military interaction based on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) related to gender policy. The methodological framework of this research consists of general scientific, philosophical, and special methods, where the formal-legal method occupies the center place. It helped to examine legal provisions of international law, doctrinal approaches, and the case law of the ECtHR related to gender policy implemented within the system of civil-military interaction. The article provides a theoretical legal analysis of civil-military interaction through the prism of human rights protection and determines its features. The article also pays significant attention to the issue of equality between men and women in the context of military conflict and civil-military cooperation, based on international law and scientific approaches.
