Gender Dimensions of Forced Displacement (GDFD) Research Program

The Gender Dimensions of Forced Displacement research program at the World Bank has examined how gender inequality impacts the experience of forced displacement in 17 countries across different dimensions of human development – income and multi-dimensional poverty, livelihoods, gender norms, intimate partner violence and child marriage. The research shows that gender-related constraints are often amplified in situations of forced displacement and considers how policies and programs can help to overcome these obstacles.
