The overall objective of this project is to study gendered dimensions of livelihoods in the context of protracted forced displacement. Specifically, we perform four sets of empirical analyses:
- We provide in-depth insights into the gendered differences in livelihood outcomes among long-term internally displaced persons (IDPs), including realized and aspired outcomes.
- We study the gendered constraints shaping livelihood outcomes among long- term IDPs, including contextual, endowment and household-level factors.
- We conduct comparisons of gendered livelihood outcomes and constraints among IDPs with those among comparable non-IDPs.
- We analyze the role of long-term impacts of personal displacement and conflict histories in shaping gendered outcomes, constraints and IDP/non-IDP differences today.
We analyze these topics in the context of urban and peri-urban areas of El Fasher, North Darfur, Sudan, which includes two IDP areas.
