Gendered Dimensions of Protracted Forced Displacement in Sudan

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:

  1. We provide in-depth insights into the gendered differences in livelihood outcomes among long-term internally displaced persons (IDPs), including realized and aspired outcomes.
  2. We study the gendered constraints shaping livelihood outcomes among long- term IDPs, including contextual, endowment and household-level factors.
  3. We conduct comparisons of gendered livelihood outcomes and constraints among IDPs with those among comparable non-IDPs.
  4. 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.
