Women Participation in Syrian Cities Today: Emerging Roles and Opportunities - A preliminary scoping review on governance and productivity

03.08.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

This report is a preliminary scoping review of the emerging roles played by women in the public sphere in Syrian cities toady. The main research question was defined as what roles and opportunities are available/emerging for women in relation to governance and to their economic participation in the Syrian cities today? But underlying this specific question, the report indirectly explores wider issues, namely: a) identifying new social and political roles exercised by women and men in the public sphere as a consequence of the enduring conflict in the country, b) understanding the transformations in the public sphere of cities and the new forms of social and political agency affecting the governance of that sphere, and c) mapping the transformation of the urban sphere itself as a result of changing demographic and economic realities.

This project is funded by the European Union.
