Unpacking Gender: The Humanitarian Response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Jordan

03.02.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

This report is a result of wide literature review and a month-long field assessment in Jordan, including in-depth interviews, focus group meetings and observa­tion. It aims to identify how the hu­manitarian community was integrating existing gender guidance across all sectors and whether gender was being dealt with centrally as an institutionalized way of working rather than peripherally. It looked at the ways in which humanitarian agencies, including UN agencies and international and local organizations, assessed these needs and planned their programs. It also asked questions about the opportunities and good practices and models for promoting gender equality and wom­en’s empowerment.
