Gender and Forced Displacement

The research explores comparatively the nature of gendered migration and displacement (internal and international) for adults, adolescents and children. The project seeks to understand and measure how gender inequalities are affected by forced displacement in Afghanistan, Iraq(Kurdistan),Lebanon, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Turkey, and to examine how these inequalities might be addressed in policies of international protection and assistance in settlement in Sri Lanka so as to facilitate the empowerment and acquisition of skills of displaced girls and women. Based on field research, the project will produce academic publications and a training manual for researchers identifying relevant resources.
