Project description

This research wants to highlight the conceptual links between gender and displacement and inform how resettlement programmes can fail due to their neglect of gender concerns; identify and understand why gender blindness and insensitivity persist in policies and programmes; and elaborate how gender can concretely be incorporated into the plans and activities of different state and policy actors in the course of resettlement programmes.
