Gender Dimensions of Forced Displacement

January 27, 2022


Gender Dimensions of Forced Displacement

  • How does forced displacement affect women and men differently? And how should policy and program design and implementation reflect these differences?  Building the Evidence on Forced Displacement, a research partnership between the UK, UNHCR, and the World Bank, has generated important new insights on these questions. Join a high level event bringing together researchers, civil society, and global leaders to discuss the policy and programming implications of this catalytic research program.

    This event is part of the World Bank Group’s yearlong Gender Equality and Development +10: Accelerate Equality initiative, which explores the important progress made and lessons learned in reducing gender gaps and increasing women’s economic empowerment over the last 10 years, and takes stock of remaining challenges, while strengthening partnerships with a diverse group of stakeholders in the quest to #AccelerateEquality.
