Evaluation: Changing gender norms in conflict

The Arab Spring, conflict in Syria and Libya, and uprisings in Asia – to name but a few – have offered gaps in gender norms that directly affect women’s participation, movement, and voices in conflict and peacebuilding.  Saferworld’s latest report describes how these struggles for political and human rights “present a situation of considerable flux where widespread politicisation and greater opportunities for women’s activism are accompanied by increased risk and a backlash against women’s rights.”

Consultations with 400 men and women in 2012-13 are analyzed in this impressive evaluation here.
