The Clash of Violent Conflict, Good Jobs, and Gender Norms in Four Economies

04.08.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This study explores the effects of violent armed conflict on gender norms, men's and women's perceptions of agency and empowerment, and the strong normative frameworks that surround economic participation. The findings reaffirm the sharply different effects of conflict on women and men found in the wider literature. Men widely report emasculation as their economic opportunities deteriorate due to conflict. For women, by contrast, the stressful conflict environment seems to weaken some confining norms and structures, opening up space for them to exercise more authority in their households and gain more economic independence.
