A Toolkit for Gender Analysis
AfP was proud to host a discussion on Saferworld’s Gender Analysis of Conflict Toolkit on Dec 7th. The toolkit was designed for local NGOs around the world to supplement their conflict analysis with a gender perspective. Saferworld believes the relationship between gender and conflict goes deeper than just gender-based violence as a side effect of conflict. Rather, they see gender norms as an underlying driver of conflict itself. The toolkit gives organizations resources to better understand the drivers of conflict and the impact conflict has on each gender.
Saferworld’s toolkit is designed to be complementary to Conciliation Resources’ Gender and conflict analysis toolkit for peacebuilders, which can be downloaded here.
A draft of the toolkit was piloted in Moroto District, North Eastern Uganda in March 2016. You can read the findings of that analysis here.
