Research on Gender Justice, Conflict and Fragility in the Middle East and North Africa

Kristine Anderson, Consultant, International Alert

Oxfam and International Alert launched a multi-country report on gender justice during fragility and conflict. The report examines the impact of fragility and conflict on gender justice and women’s rights, as a part of an Oxfam project entitled ‘Promoting the Needs of Women in Conflict in the Middle East and North Africa’ funded through the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It specifically aims to understand how conflict and fragility in four different contexts – Egypt, Iraq, the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Yemen – have impacted the realization of gender equality and gender justice in the past several years of political and social upheaval. 

More information and access to the report are available here.
