Gender, conflict and development: Volume I: Overview
This report was commissioned by the Netherlands Special Programme on WID, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) of the Netherlands as a background paper for a conference on gender, conflict and development. The report will draw on the limited available literature of development and conflict, giving a typology of conflicts and examining various possible causes of conflict. It will also seek to identify the ways in which there may be space for the re-negotiation of gender identities. The report gives a more detailed account of the gender dimensions of conflict showing how the economic, social and psychological effects of conflict differ by gender.
